David Cameron 'thrilled' at birth of daughter in Cornwall

David Cameron has said he is a "very proud dad" after his wife Samantha gave birth to a girl, their fourth child.

The baby - weighing 6lb 1oz - was delivered by caesarean section while the family was on holiday in Cornwall.

Mr Cameron said the new arrival was "absolutely thrilling" and added that the couple had yet to decide on a name.

The baby had been expected in September. The Camerons have two children and their eldest son Ivan died last year.
