PM and wife Samantha photographed on summer break

David Cameron and his wife Samantha have been photographed on a sunny break in Polzeath.

The couple were dressed in complementary blue tones, with Mr Cameron opting for a navy polo shirt and matching shorts, while his wife wore a denim blouse teamed with beige chino shorts.

Mr Cameron appeared relaxed, with his top button undone, showing little signs of the pain he has been suffering.

It is not the first time the Camerons have visited Polzeath. Last year they braved blustery showers to have lunch at a beach-front cafe where they shared a bowl of local mussels on the terrace during a gap in the rain.

The couple have visited Cornwall for the last few summers and it was where their younger daughter Florence was born in 2010.
