Prime minister David Cameron pulls out of interview with Julia George of BBC Radio Kent to speak to another leader

The Prime Minister has pulled out of an interview he was scheduled to give to BBC Radio Kent, the day after his culture secretary Maria Miller quit following days of intense pressure on her to resign. 

Mr Cameron had been due to appear this morning for what was billed as a wide-raging interview with presenter Julia George.
 
It seemed his appearance was still expected this morning as the programme had been inviting listeners to send in questions.

But at the last minute, Downing Street said he had to make another call to a fellow Prime Minister and the timing clashed.
 
Presenter Julia George told listeners: "We had scheduled an interview with David Cameron. He has withdrawn from the interview because he has to make a call to another Prime Minister."
