PRIME Minister David Cameron was back on holiday body-boarding in Cornwall today.

The Witney MP had briefly broken off from his summer break this week to return to London following the beheading of journalist James Foley in Iraq.

But today he was back on holiday, clearly letting the stresses of state wash away during a 20-minute dip amongst the waves, as our pictures show.

Silly arse, would have thought there were slightly more important things to deal with, most of which he is responsible for, back in London.
