A NORTH Yorkshire MP is to get involved in a ‘Tweet Off’ with other MPs later this month, to raise awareness of heart disease.

Harrogate and Knaresborough MP Andrew Jones is to tweet a picture of himself in Westminster, taken by the British Heart Foundation on Wednesday, from his account @AndrewJonesMP.

He will then compete with other MPs to get it retweeted as many times as possible to raise awareness of National Heart Month.
