(LONDON) -- British Prime Minister David Cameron is red-faced Monday over a report that he and his wife accidentally left their 8-year-old daughter behind in a pub after enjoying lunch with two other families.
Britain’s Telegraph reports when the meal was done, the Camerons packed their 6-year-old son and 22-month-old daughter in a car and took off from The Plough in Cadsden, Bucks, not realizing that their eldest daughter wasn’t with them until two miles down the road. The prime minister immediately got out of the car to call the pub, where the staff confirmed that their girl was fine after being found in a lavatory.
One pub insider told The Sun tabloid that it wasn’t feasible calling Nancy’s folks because, “It’s not like you can look up David Cameron in the phone book and then ring to say, ‘You’ve left your daughter behind.’”
The same person remarked, “It’s frightening the prime minister of Britain can forget something so important as his own daughter.”
It took about 15 minutes from the time the Camerons left the pub until they returned to fetch Nancy.
