Prime Minister endures icy challenge in Oxford annual run

It's not the first time the Prime Minister has received a frosty reception.

But yesterday, the Witney MP endured a cold welcome of a different kind, as he ran in freezing conditions through Oxfordshire.

It was all part of the Great Brook Run - which takes place every year in Chadlington.

David Cameron was one of 140 runners who took part in the charity race and he's not a novice to the event, running in 2008, 2009 and 2012.

The run saw him wade through brooks in the Oxfordshire countryside before finishing off the race with a pint.

Gove's wife tweets link to article criticising reshuffle

Michael Gove's wife Sarah Vine has tweeted a link to a Daily Mail article which criticised David Cameron's "sacking" of the former Education Secretary.

Mr Gove was moved from his education post to Chief Whip in yesterday's reshuffle, with the Prime Minister claiming he wanted "one of my big hitters, one of my real stars" in the position ahead of next year's General Election.

The Chief Whip also played down suggestions he was demoted, saying: "Demotion, emotion, promotion, locomotion, I don't know how you would describe this move - though move it is."

He also claimed Mr Cameron gave him the option of staying as the Education Secretary.
