Kiera Norris, from Alnwick, was outside Copperfields café, on Market Street, when Mr Cameron approached her.

“As he was walking past, he stopped to shake my hand so I took the opportunity and asked him for a selfie,” said the mother-of-one.

When the 24-year-old was unlocking her phone to take the picture, the Prime Minister spotted a picture of her son, Kai.

“He asked if Kai was mine and how old. I told him his name and that he’s four. He asked if he was at school, then I took the picture,” she said.
