Cameron shells out on eggs for wife's omelette

politicians must do more to end the bitter sectarian divisions which remain in the North, British Prime Minister David Cameron insisted yesterday.

Mr Cameron told the Stormont Assembly that he was depressed at the increase in so-called "peace walls" and disappointed that Protestants and Catholics often lived segregated lives.

He said it was now time for the parties to "move beyond the peace process" and to build a shared future.

But the British leader warned that "the days are over" when cash from London could be sought to solve every problem.

He went for a walkabout at the end of his six-hour visit.

Mr Cameron flew by helicopter to the heart of Co Fermanagh to view a cross-community enterprise project which he said should be replicated across the rest of the UK.

He included a trip to Millar's home butchers in Irvinestown and bought six duck eggs.

Slapping £10 (e11) on the counter, he said: "I am going to make an egg omelette for the wife."
