The prime minister and his wife dodged a series of showers to have a lunch of mussels in a Cornwall resort.

David and Samantha Cameron were revisiting Polzeath, one of their favourite holiday spots.

The Camerons gave their youngest daughter Florence a middle name of Endellion in honour of the area where they were staying before she was born at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in 2010.

Princes William and Harry went body-boarding at Polzeath in July.

Heavy rain swept Cornwall earlier as the Camerons went to shelter at a seafront cafe where they shared a bowl of the Porthilly mussels mariniere.

The couple are on holiday until next weekend, although Mr Cameron will return to London for the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games on Wednesday.

The Camerons could be allowed to shed their coats on Sunday when a largely dry day with spells of sunshine is forecast.
