The stress of looking after a child who needed 24-hour care almost brought her marriage with British prime minister David Cameron to "breaking point", she said.

Ivan was born with a rare brain disorder which caused epilepsy and cerebral palsy, and died in 2009.

Mrs Cameron said the couple were helped through the crisis by their faith. "When Ivan was born we could have been angry with God, but we felt he'd given Ivan to us to look after, and we had to do the best job that we could," she said.
