Camerons Show Off Baby Florence At Number 10

Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha have shown off their their new baby daughter, Florence Rose Endellion on the steps of number 10 Downing Street.

It is the first time that Mrs Cameron and eleven-day old Florence have been seen in public.

A statement issued by the Prime Minister said: "Samantha and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kindness and generosity since the birth of baby Florence.

"We have been really, really touched by all the people who have offered their warm congratulations, and by the many cards, gifts and flowers that we have received."

The couple were on holiday near Truro when baby Florence was born early on August 24. The baby, who weighed 6lb 1oz, was delivered by Caesarean section at the Royal Cornwall Hospital.

The Camerons have two other children, Nancy Gwen, six, and Arthur Elwen, four. Their eldest son, Ivan, tragically died in February 2009, aged six. He had suffered from a rare combination of cerebral palsy and Ohtahara syndrome, a form of severe epilepsy, and required round-the-clock care.
