Cameron's 'peace offering' email to angry party activists

David Cameron has sought to rebuild relations with Conservative activists angry over claims an ally of his called them "swivel-eyed loons".

Mr Cameron has emailed all Tory activists to say he would never employ someone who "sneered" at them.

Lord Feldman has denied making the alleged comment.

Political correspondent Norman Smith explains Mr Cameron's email is the start of rebuilding relationships in the party.
