David Cameron bangs car while reversing

January 26, 2012 - London

David Cameron bumped his family nanny's car into a stationary vehicle while parking.

The Prime Minister was left embarrassed after he returned home from a workout with personal trainer Matt Roberts. Wearing a personalised Nike tracksuit, the PM went to the aid of grateful nanny Gita Lama in Downing Street, the Mirror reported.

"She was struggling to park her Honda Jazz in a tight space as she arrived at work," a source said.

"It was just after 8am and Mr Cameron came back home in a Jaguar with his trainer and protection officers. He saw Gita was having difficulties, jumped out of his car and ran over to help.

"She got out of the driver's seat and he got in. He was trying to carefully move the Honda forward when the front bumper hit the back of a parked Peugeot 206.

The source insisted that it was not a 'big noise'.

"It was just the two bumpers coming together. Mr Roberts and the protection guys all burst out laughing. When Mr Cameron eventually parked the car, he got out and glanced down at the bumper to see what damage there was."

"From what I could see there was no damage to the car and everyone saw the funny side."

Meanwhile Downing Street denied the accident.

"He helped park the nanny's car," a source close to the PM said.

"They have a new car and she was trying to park it. The Prime Minister reverse parked it. He did not prang or bump the car," the source added.
