David Cameron is holding talks with President Xi at Chequers in Buckinghamshire on the third day of his state visit.

This isn't the first time Mr Cameron had been to the Plough. The Prime Minister once left his daughter Nancy behind following an afternoon out.

"I've been in here a few times," he joked with regulars. "I'm not leaving my family here today."
