David Cameron flies to Ibiza for Bank Holiday mini-break

David Cameron and his family have flown to Ibiza for a Bank Holiday break in the sunshine.

The Sun reports that the Prime Minister told friends he was taking a break for "a few days", before catching a flight out of London on Saturday morning.

Mr Cameron, his wife Samantha and their children Nancy, Elwen and Florence have flown to the island which is famed for its party culture.

This isn't the first time that the family have holidayed on Ibiza. They spent a week on the island in 2011, when Samantha was spotted partying at the International Music Summit at Dalt Villa, overlooking Ibiza Town. She is also good friends with Jade Jagger, who has a home on the island.

The Prime Minister has been strongly criticised for his decision to leave the UK following the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, on Wednesday.

However, last year he spoke out the importance of politicians taking holidays.

The Guardian reports that, speaking at a press conference to mark the beginning of the 2012 Olympics, he said: "I'm a great believer that politicians are human beings and they need to have holidays. I don't call it annual leave, I call it a holiday. If you don't think politicians ought to have holidays, I think you need to have a serious think."
