Cameron tells Germany and EU: 'We are an open nation'

David Cameron has said Britain has the mentality of an island nation, but that he never wants to "pull up the drawbridge and retreat from the world".

Speaking in Hamburg, the PM said Britain was an "open nation" and the values it shared with Germany underpinned their co-operation on trade, enterprise and security, co-operation which he hoped would continue.

The prime minister is hoping for a deal at next week's summit of EU leaders in Brussels to allow him to put the new terms of membership to the British public in a referendum in June.
