PRIME minister David Cameron dropped in at The News headquarters during a visit to Portsmouth.

Mr Cameron was in Portsmouth to confirm a deal that will bring new life to the empty shiphall in Portsmouth as firms Magma Structures and BAE Systems will set up shop at Portsmouth Naval Base.

The prime minister also met with apprentices from Vector Aerospace, in Gosport, which has today won a £420m contract to service the Royal Air Force’s fleet of Chinooks.

The visit also included a tour of Sir Ben Ainslie’s race base site, before Mr Cameron finished his visit at The News offices.
