David Cameron praises 'strong ties' with Nicolas Sarkozy

David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy have hailed the strong ties between the UK and France after agreeing to work more closely on military operations and civil nuclear power.

But Mr Cameron said they had an "incredibly strong relationship based on shared interests".
