David Cameron awkwardly recreated The Beatles' Abbey Road album cover as part of his Remain campaign


Prime Minister David Cameron with Labour's former culture secretary Tessa Jowell take part in a round table discussion

With barely a month to go until the referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union, and with Tory in-fighting building to a crescendo, David Cameron visited Abbey Road studios where the Beatles recorded their famous song Come Together.

The Prime Minister continued his bid to persuade voters to back the Remain campaign as he met leaders of the creative industries who have called for the UK to stay in the EU.

Dominic West, the actor best known for playing Jimmy McNulty in the TV series The Wire, and the artist Anish Kapoor were two of the people who took part along with Culture Minister Ed Vaizey and Labour's former culture secretary Tessa Jowell.

Cameron and Jowell could not resist recreating The Beatles' famous Abbey Road album cover when they left, walking across the pedestrian crossing outside the studios - and it didn't go down too well with the nation.

Cameron received a guided tour of the venue and joked that it was "a bit like the Tardis" as he met Laura Wright, the England rugby team's official national anthem singer, and the London Metropolitan Orchestra, after they performed the Second World War song A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square.

He then hosted a round-table discussion with representatives of the creative industries who stressed to him the importance of the UK voting to remain in the EU.

While at the studios, Cameron signed the memorial book to the Beatles' producer Sir George Martin, who died in March, said Downing Street.

Abbey Road has welcomed some of the biggest names in the history of music through its doors to record some of the most famous albums ever released, including Pink Floyd's The Dark Side Of The Moon.
