Home secretary Theresa May got more than she bargained for when out door-knocking with Norwich North MP Chloe Smith this afternoon.

The Conservative MPs met with local police officers at the Christchurch Centre, in Magdalen Road, before going knocking on doors in nearby Albany Road.

It was there that both MPs got something of a shock, as one Norwich resident had jumped out of the bath to answer his door.

Undeterred, the politicians still asked if they could give the man a Conservative Party leaflet, to which he laughed and said: “No you can’t!”

Watch the moment the two Tory MPs met one of Miss Smith’s half-naked constituents by pressing play on the video above.

Mrs May, MP for Maidenhead in Berkshire, met with Broadland MP Keith Simpson earlier in the day. She said: “I’m pleased to be here to head out with Chloe and talk to local people and local police about crime in the local area.

“I spent a lot of time in North Norwich for the 2009 by-election which Chloe held, which I was very pleased about because I think Chloe is an excellent MP.”

Labour are known to be targeting both Norwich parliamentary seats ahead of the 2015 general election.

Miss Smith recently returned to the Westminster backbenches after three years as a minister, after stepping down from her cabinet office post, as she said she wanted to concentrate on her constituency.

Mrs May added: “I think it’s a measure of Chloe that she was prepared to give up her position because she wants to spend more time in her constituency and give more of her time to the Norwich For Jobs scheme, I think that’s really excellent.”
