The boy done good: Cameron takes son to football

Joe Churcher in London

David Cameron once again suffered seeing his side fail to win an outright victory as an own goal caused him misery.

The disappointment of having defeat snatched away at the last minute came this time at the football and not in a general election, however.

With the political spotlight focused on Labour's conference in Liverpool, the British prime minister spent the afternoon watching Aston Villa's away tie at Queens Park Rangers.

The premier has supported the English midlands outfit since he was taken to see them as a 13-year-old by his uncle William Dugdale, a former club chairman.

Yesterday it was Mr Cameron's turn to give a youngster his first taste of top-flight football, taking his son Arthur Elwen to Loftus Road in west London where the home side equalised at the death to earn a point.
