VIDEO: Theresa May waves off awkward moment as she leaves Downing Street and walks to wrong car

Conservative leader Theresa May waved off an awkward moment today when she emerged from Number 10 and walked to the wrong car, forcing her into a U-turn.

She then posed for photos outside the famous black door before getting into the right car and being driven away.

David Cameron's successor arrived at 10 Downing Street in her trademark kitten heels on the day before she moves into the famous address as the UK's second female PM.

Ms May and right-hand man George Osborne led the tributes to the Cameron as he bid farewell to his top team by chairing an "emotional" final Cabinet meeting.

Cabinet ministers spoke of a "sad day" but also Mr Cameron's determination to remain upbeat and continue to drive the one nation Conservative agenda as he prepared to hand power to Mrs May.

Mrs May now faces a breakneck period of activity appointing a new Cabinet after the expected nine-week leadership campaign was truncated to just a couple of days by Andrea Leadsom's withdrawal from the contest.
