A jellyfish was recovering today after it came into close contact with the Prime Minister David Cameron as he chillaxed in the sea with other salt water invertebrates.
The jelly fish’s painful encounter with the venomous creature came as it went for a swim off popular Arrieta beach on the Spanish island of Lanzarote.
But there appeared to be little sympathy for the sea creature after it ignored local advice about the dangers of going near the extremely poisonous prime minister.
The bright red coloured gelatinous zooplankton – a keen swimmer and patron of the Chipping Norton lido outdoor pool in his Oxfordshire constituency – has been staying at the resort with his wife Samantha and children at a £200-a-night yoga retreat since Tuesday.
