>> The potential future leader of UKIP has been hospitalized after a so-called altercation. At first, Steven Woolfe was said to be in a serious condition in Strasbourg. He's since released a statement saying a CT scan has ruled out a blood clot in the brain. But Woolfe stressed he would be staying in hospital overnight as a precaution.
The party's interim boss Nigel Farage claims the incident happened at a meeting of UKIP MEPs of the European Parliament. Media reports suggest Woolfe was punched, collapsing sometime later. The incident comes just a day after Woolfe put himself forward as a leadership contender. The field thrown open when recently elected Diane James stepped down after just 18 days in charge.
On Wednesday, Farage declared himself interim leader until a new replacement was chosen. The party has been in disarray since Farage resigned following Britain's vote to leave the EU.
