Cameron's pledge on ending Punch and Judy politics

Before he was prime minister, David Cameron said he wanted to rid politics of its Punch and Judy image.

Celebrations are being prepared to mark the 350th birthday of Mr Punch, first spotted in Covent Garden by the diarist Samuel Pepys in 1662.

Adam Fleming explored his political side with two professors and professional Punch and Judy puppeteers - John Styles and Glyn Edwards.
