David Cameron has flown to Spain for a short break with his wife to mark her impending 40th birthday.

The prime minister and his wife, Samantha, flew with a low-cost airline without their three children yesterday, and are due to return to the UK on Friday.

Cameron is "still in charge" despite being on a break, Downing Street said. "He's still prime minister," a spokesman said.

His deputy, Nick Clegg, came under fire in February when he told a London newspaper he "forgot" that he was running the country when Cameron was on a working tour of the Middle East.

At the time, Cameron dismissed suggestions that he had handed over the reins, saying: "Just because I leave the country, doesn't mean I am not in charge."

Cameron has taken the opportunity offered by the start of the Easter recess to spend some time with his wife, who will turn 40 later this month.

He flew to Spain on Wednesday after a hectic day in which he arrived back from Pakistan in the early hours, chaired a cabinet meeting and visited a hospital as part of emergency efforts to rescue the government's under-fire NHS reforms.

It is the first time the couple have been abroad on holiday since Cameron became prime minister in May.
