Statement from David Cameron following the death of broadcaster and writer Sir David Frost.

The Prime Minister said:

My heart goes out to Carina and the family. Sir David was an extraordinary man - with charm, wit, talent, intelligence and warmth in equal measure. He made a huge impact on television and politics. The Nixon interviews were among the great broadcast moments - but there were many other brilliant interviews. He could be - and certainly was with me - both a friend and a fearsome interviewer.
