Michael Gove Takes A Tumble On Way To Number 10 (VIDEO)

As Michael Gove briskly trots along the pavement, clutching official-looking documents he fails to notice a rather slippery spot on the pavement.

The education secretary takes a tumble, with all the grace of Bambi on ice, and quickly spots the Sky camera lurking a few feet away. He jumps to his feet, brushes himself down, and with one last withering look at the offending patch, hurries along on his way.

A few moments later, Gove re-emerges into the open, giving a jubilant grin and an "I've still got it" wink for the camera, before marching importantly into Number 10.
