The Leicester Mercury has published a truly shocking story.
It's not online so I can't link to it but here are some excerpts:
A mental health patient says a hospital smoking ban is hampering her recovery. She also claims some patients are being taken on "smoking walks" along the potentially dangerous and busy A50 road near the unit on the Glenfield Hospital site.
Helen Charlesworth, a 30-a-day smoker, was admitted to the Bradgate mental health unit six weeks ago. She is so poorly she is not allowed away from the unit – but her cigarettes have also been banned.
Helen, who is bipolar and suffers from personality disorder, said: "I was given patches but they didn't work and I have tried an e-cigarette but I am becoming more and more depressed because I can't have a cigarette.
"People used to be able to have e-cigarettes in the garden but even that has now been stopped."
Helen also told the paper:
"People used to be able to smoke in the garden at the Bradgate unit but because there is a ban on smoking in the grounds now some patients are being escorted on smoking walks.
"They have to go right up by the A50, which could be quite dangerous and put some people at risk, especially is someone had suicidal thoughts. It is also taking staff longer because of the distance.
"It is not just the patients. I know that many of the staff don't agree with the ban either."
I've just checked and it appears that Helen Charlesworth's MP might be Nicky Morgan.
If that's correct perhaps the former Education Secretary could take time off from sniping at Theresa May and take up Helen's case.
After all, representing the interests of constituents is supposed to be an MP's principal role, not commenting on Brexit, grammar schools or the PM's choice of trousers.
