Prime Minister David Cameron met one-year-old Luca during a walkabout in Asda this morning. Lucas appeared to want to give Mr Cameron his Easter Bunny balloon.
The pair appeared to get on very well, and when his mother handed him over to take a picture, she joked she was off to do her shopping, happy to leave him in the Prime Minister's apparently capable hands.
Supermarket giant Asda is bringing real value to more customers in the UK, the president and chief executive of the store's US parent company Walmart said, after it announced it would create 12,000 new jobs over the next five years. Doug McMillon said:
David Cameron said today he is "delighted" by supermarket giant Asda's plans to create 12,000 new jobs over the next five years.
The Prime Minister who was visiting one of Asda's stores in south London, said: "Supporting business, creating jobs and cutting taxes are all part of our long-term economic plan.
"I am delighted that Asda is continuing to invest heavily in the UK, creating another 12,000 jobs that will give people financial security for the future."
