    Stabbed: Labour MP Stephen Timms
    A former minister was stabbed twice in the stomach by a knife-wielding woman today as he held a surgery for constituents.
    Stephen Timms was attacked by the 21-year-old, who appeared to be wearing Muslim dress, at his regular Friday afternoon surgery in his East London constituency.
    She lunged at him and stabbed him twice before being wrestled away by a security guard and arrested.
    An aide to Mr Timms was hailed a hero after it was revealed he wrestled the knife out of the hands of the female attacker.
    Andrew Bazeley, 22, bravely disarmed the woman who had made an appointment to see Mr Timms at his constituency surgery, witnesses said.
    Mr Bazeley was left covered in blood after he grabbed the knife and restrained the woman until a security guard arrived.
    Mr Timms, 54, was being treated in hospital tonight and said to be in a stable condition.
    Eye-witnesses screamed in terror as they watched the woman stab him in the abdomen.
    One person who arrived moments after Mr Timms was attacked, said she saw blood on his shirt and an Asian woman being restrained by security guards.
    Police arrested the attacker and the MP - one of the tallest politicians in Parliament - was taken to the Royal London Hospital.
    The senior Labour MP, one of the longest surviving and least controversial members of the former Labour Government, was said tonight to be in 'good spirits'.
    Sagal Ahmed,16, a student at Kingsford Community School, was in the community centre in Beckton when the stabbing happened
