Galloway bruised by a stress ball; uk news bulletin.

GEORGE Galloway was left dazed and bruised yesterday, after being pelted with a rubber stress ball while out campaigning.

The firebrand Respect Party MP was on an open-top bus in central London when the ball was thrown from a nearby office block.

His aide Kevin Ovenden said: "He was momentarily dazed and because of the impact of the blow he lost his balance and hit the other side of his head on the side of the bus.

"There is a nasty bruise on the side of George's head, but he will continue campaigning for the local elections."

Police were called, and made one arrest from the office block on Procter Street, Holborn - thought to be a man working at a research company.
