David Cameron’s son, Ivan, dies

The BBC brings us the sad news:

Conservative leader David Cameron’s eldest son Ivan has died in hospital. The six-year-old, who had cerebral palsy and epilepsy, became ill overnight and was taken to St Mary’s hospital where he died early Wednesday.

A Conservative spokesman said: “David and Samantha would ask that their privacy is respected at this terribly difficult time.”

Mr Cameron, who described Ivan as “wonderful”, and wife Samantha have two younger children, Nancy and Arthur.

A Conservative Party statement said: “It is with great sadness that David and Samantha Cameron must confirm the death of their six-year-old son Ivan. Ivan, who suffered from cerebral palsy and severe epilepsy, was taken ill overnight and died at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, early this morning.”

Our thoughts are with David and Samantha Cameron at this terrible time.
