Former cabinet minister Tony Benn is "resting comfortably" after being admitted to hospital this week, a family spokesman said.
The 88-year-old politician was taken into hospital on Wednesday on the advice of his GP.
Mr Benn, whose family home is the historic Stansgate Abbey Farm on the Blackwater estuary near Steeple, retired as an MP in 2001.
He has been president of the Stop the War Coalition for the last decade.
