David Ruffley, who represents Bury St Edmunds, was struck by the train during rush-hour on Thursday.

The 48-year-old MP was rushed to St Thomas' Hospital where he was treated for "minor injuries".

A Conservative Party spokeswoman said: "David Ruffley received minor injuries at a London railway station on Thursday evening."

Mr Ruffley has held his Bury St Edmunds seat since 1997.

He is a former Opposition whip and shadow police reform minister.

He was re-elected with a majority of 12,380 on May 6.
