The prime minister was in Norwich for a whistle-stop trip to local jewellery business Lisa Angel.
The prime minister was in Norwich today to visit an entrepreneur in the Rackheath Industrial Estate.
Mr Cameron visited Lisa Angel’s jewellery business as he launched his election pledge to help small business owners through ‘start-up loans’
He was invited to try his hand at engraving a necklace as it is his daughter, Nancy Cameron’s, 11th birthday today.
As he was engraving the necklace, his lettering went skew-whiff, and he remarked that he “didn’t think this would be her favourite present.”
He was delayed leaving the industrial unit by 30 minutes while staff hatched a plan on how to avoid a man in a chicken costume, carrying a placard reading “Don’t be a chicken Mr Cameron: join the TV debate”, on behalf of the Daily Mirror newspaper.
Eventually Mr Cameron’s staff left in his official car, while the Prime Minister left through another exit as police looked on.
