    John Prescott in hospital after a stroke...

    Former deputy prime minister and Labour veteran John Prescott has been admitted to hospital after suffering a stroke, his family has said.

    A statement on the 81-year-old's Twitter account said he was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary on Friday.

    The family said they wanted to praise the "swift actions" of the ambulance staff and the doctors and nurses at the hospital's A&E stroke unit.

    "They have been remarkable and we cannot thank them enough," they added.

    "He is receiving excellent care from the NHS."

    Lord Prescott entered Parliament in 1970 as Labour MP for Hull East. He joined Labour's shadow cabinet as a transport spokesman in 1979.

    He served as deputy to former Prime Minister Tony Blair for 10 years between 1997 and 2007, and received a peerage in 2010.

    After the news broke, Labour MPs sent Lord Prescott their best wishes.

    Labour MP for Ilford North and member of the Treasury Committee Wes Streeting said: "Wishing John well - and looking forward to him being back in the tea room giving me a ticking off again soon!"

    Angela Eagle, MP for Wallasey, said: "My first boss in government - get well soon John."

    Anna Turley, MP for Redcar, said: "Sad to hear this - wishing John well."

    Britains' favourite bar steward, get well soon
    I surrender all control
    To the desire that consumes me whole
    Leads me by the hand to infinity
    Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

    'Mr Prescott took the unusual step of overruling the advice of two planning inspectors when on Oct 27 he gave planning permission to the football club for a 22,000 seat stadium at Falmer, in the Sussex Downs area of outstanding natural beauty, shortly to become a national park.'

    Will always be grateful for that one vital autograph he gave that allowed the Amex to be built.

    Hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.
