David Cameron has opened a new police building near his home in Oxfordshire.

The prime minister visited the site at Thames Valley Police Headquarters South in Kidlington on Friday afternoon to unveil a plaque.

Mr Cameron, MP for Witney in Oxfordshire, said: "Come rain or snow you're on the streets protecting my family and I'm very grateful for that."

The new block was completed in late 2012 and is for "performance management and strategic development".

The prime minister told officers: "Thank you for the work you do to keep us safe in the Thames Valley, and a personal thank you from me because you look after my house in Oxfordshire."

Chief Constable Sara Thornton said: "I was very proud to show the prime minister our modern open plan headquarters building and to introduce him to police officers and staff."
