David Cameron has claimed his Oxfordshire home is “falling apart” because of damage caused by protesters climbing on its roof.

Mr Cameron bought the property in his Witney constituency in 2001 and has seen it repeatedly been targeted by protesters since becoming Prime Minister.

“It is falling apart because of Fathers for Justice clambering over my roof,” he told the Evening Standard.

“The tiles are falling off, the window frames are rotten but I am happy there, we all are. I am a country boy at heart,” he said.

Campaign groups Fathers for Justice and New Fathers 4 Justice have both staged protests outside the Cameron’s home in Dean

New Fathers 4 Justice were issued with a harassment order to move away from the property at the end of December after spending at least a week camped outside.

One of the campaigners claimed at the time that Mr Cameron had told them: “Not you again. You’re spoiling my Christmas.”
