LEADER of the Conservative Party, David Cameron, said he is 'looking forward' to returning to Sidmouth following an enjoyable visit last weekend.
Mr Cameron, his wife, Samantha and children in toe, spent Saturday in the town where they had home-made cakes in Mocha, before buying fishing nets and other items in the Beach Hut.
He told the Herald: "It was great to have the opportunity to visit Sidmouth at the weekend. The whole family always enjoys visiting Devon, whatever the weather - Sam and I love swimming in the sea and even though the weather was a bit grim we swam in Sidmouth and Exmouth!
"Local people were really friendly and I enjoyed chatting to people on the seafront. The only down side is leaving at the end, and I'm already looking forward to the next time I can visit."
