If you live in Witham, you may have walked past David Cameron without realising it.

Although the Prime Minister hasn’t been in town, his namesake has.

Retail manager David Cameron, who worked at Tesco in Braintree three years ago but has since moved to a store in Sudbury, lives in Forest Road, Witham with wife Melanie and daughters Georgia and Isabel.

Having the same name as one of the most famous men in the country can often shock and amuse strangers, said the 47-year-old.

He said: “It does get a bit of reaction where I work.

“If a tannoy goes out asking for me to go somewhere in the store, I have been told people start laughing.

“Some people even have a conversation with me as if I am him, recently they have been asking me about the Scottish referendum."
