PM: UK children 'want to be popstars or footballers'

David Cameron praised the career ambitions of a group of schoolchildren in Liberia, joking that "if you asked people in England, they'd all say they want to be popstars or footballers."

He is in Liberia to co-chair a United Nations meeting on international development targets, and visited the Anna F Whisnant Elementary School, alongside the country's president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

There, pupils told him they wanted to be doctors and lawyers.
