One Direction video a Cameron 'musical highlight'

David Cameron's appearance at the door of 10 Downing Street in the One Direction Red Nose Day video was a personal musical highlight for the Prime Minister. Speaking at the music industry event in west London he added:

"Having met them I can confirm that the full name of the album title is Take Me Home It's Way Past My Bedtime."

The Prime Minister said the music industry drew people from around the world to the UK for "music tourism", adding:

"People coming to Britain to listen to great acts as I discovered to my cost on Sunday night when Muse played a small free concert outside my bedroom in 10 Downing Street when I was trying to get to sleep."
