Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has defended David Cameron's decision to resume his holiday in Cornwall despite rebels advancing on Tripoli.

The Prime Minister broke off his holiday to chair a meeting of the National Security Council as rebels advanced on Muammar Gaddafi's forces in the Libyan capital .

Clegg insisted the Prime Minister was in 'constant contact' with other world leaders and the Libyan National Transitional Council.

'We as a Government work collectively very effectively. I regularly chair meetings of the National Security Council and have done so again today ... and that is exactly the way we will continue to operate,' Clegg told the Belfast Telegraph.

David was snapped getting into the Cornwall holiday mode this weekend, as he joined wife Samantha at Port Isaac's Fresh from the Sea shop to pick up some fish for an evening barbecue on the beach.
