The man, accompanied by his young daughter, confronted Mr Cameron as he canvassed voters in the town of Witney.

The man, an ex-army soldier, described how, on his return from Kosovo he tried to contact Mr Cameron as he needed help with finding a home for him and his family. “Thirty odd phone calls and you didn’t ring me back once” he said.
Mr Cameron said he was “very sorry” and asked if there was “anything I can do to help you now”, but was told the situation had now been resolved. Aides to the Conservative leader said the local party chairman had spoken to the man and was following up the case. However, they were unable to confirm his name.
The incident marred what was an otherwise warm reception for the Witney MP as he campaigned on home turf. Mr Cameron also stopped to buy flowers for his pregnant wife Samantha, who was celebrating her 39th birthday.
