Nick Clegg has made a surprise visit to Center Parcs, Longleat Forest, his first visit since becoming Deputy Prime Minister.
'I take my hat off to all the brave boys and girls currently serving a term at this Wiltshire resort,' said Mr Clegg, 'The British people owe them a great debt of gratitude.'
Mr Clegg appeared at a press conference alongside Center Parcs Manager Mr Keith Brownlow, where he pledged his continued support to securing stability in the region. 'Center Parcs, Longleat is the Government's number one priority,' he said, 'Britain has thousands of people trapped in a holiday they can never resolve. We must find an exit strategy.'
Many experts believe that the British need to transfer their presence from the northern Center Parcs resort of Whinfell Forest, Cumbria in order to focus their resources on maintaining security in the south.
The Government is expected to soon be outlining a timetable for the British withdrawal from Center Parcs, although it is thought that the only realistic way out may be to truncate the standard 7 day tour of duty to a Short Weekend Break.
Mr Clegg also announced increased funding to tackle the menace of IADs or Improvised Activity Devices, including the Wild Water Rapids, Tree Trekking and the Aqua Sana Spa. 'Too many people have already suffered at the hands of these activities,' said Mr Clegg, 'but the British Government is fully committed to doing everything it can to getting our people safely back home.'
