Marine Le Pen is seriously injured after fracturing her spine in swimming pool fall

Far-right politician Marine Le Pen has fractured her spine after falling into an empty swimming pool in France, it emerged tonight.

News of the 44-year-old's 'rather serious' accident will send shockwaves around nationalist groups, not just in France but across Europe.

Le Pen, who is leader of the National Front (FN), is one of the most high-profile right-wing politicians on the continent, with her hardline anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim agenda regularly winning a huge number of votes at elections.
