NORTH Devon's Prospective Conservative candidate at the next general election is continuing his recovery following triple heart bypass surgery at Plymouth's Derriford Hospital.

Philip J Milton underwent the surgery on November 16 and was released from hospital the following Saturday.

He is now concentrating on walking routines and on rebuilding his breathing capacity and is already back in contact with his office via email, albeit in a limited capacity.

Mr Milton said he wanted to thank everyone who had helped, including his medical team, friends and family, and all those who had sent cards and good wishes.
