David Cameron: 'UK heading in right direction'

Help

David Cameron has used his New Year's message to say the UK is "heading in the right direction".

In the video address he admitted he had "no quick fixes" to the UK's economic problems.

However, he said there had been "real progress" on cutting Britain's financial deficit, welfare reform and improving school standards.

Labour said the prime minister had "promised change" but that "nothing is changing for the better".
