Education Minister, Ronald Thwaites, has been released from hospital and is "recovering well" at home, following a fall at his farm in St Andrew on Saturday.
In a statement this evening, the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) said Thwaites was released from hospital today. 

It said he was released after tests revealed minor injuries to his wrist and shoulder.

The OPM statement said Thwaites "continues to express appreciation for everyone's concern and well wishes."

Meanwhile, another member of the government, Junior Minister in the Science, Technology Energy and Mining Ministry, Julian Robinson, suffered various injuries after falling from his bicycle on Saturday. 

He posted on Twitter that he suffered a dislocated finger, bruises and scrapes. 

Robinson said he was riding down a steep hill at high speed and was taking a corner "very wide" when he noticed a car heading towards him.

According to him, he swerved and pressed "too hard" on his front brakes, resulting in his fall.  

He said he was treated yesterday at the Andrews Memorial Hospital in St Andrew. 

Robinson is the Member of Parliament for South East St. Andrew. ‎
