Cameron tries to close stable door after Rebekah Brooks horse story has bolted

David Cameron confirms rode former police horse Raisa while it was on loan to Rebekah Brooks - but not while prime minister

David Cameron's efforts to edge away from Rebekah Brooks, the fallen News International executive, came unstuck on Friday when he was forced after three days of non-denial denials to admit that he had ridden on a horse loaned to her by the Metropolitan police as a personal favour.

He said he had not ridden the horse named Raisa while prime minister.

Disputes over the significance of the story rapidly became as much a matter of controversy as the story itself, and unleashed a crowded field of horse metaphors.

Cameron, who cultivates an image of middle class normality, will be horrified at the way the episode links him to a lethal cocktail of urban journalistic cynicism, patrician country pursuits, police corruption and Downing Street evasion. blah blah and video
