Good luck tweet from PM Cameron for ailing Nick Robinson

By Joe Churcher

Prime Minister David Cameron has sent a get well message to BBC political editor Nick Robinson after news that he is being treated for a tumour.

The 51-year-old journalist, who has led the corporation's Westminster coverage since 2005, needs an operation to remove a bronchial carcinoid tumour from his lung.

But the married father-of-three hopes to be back at work in time to cover the general election campaign, his agent said.

In a Twitter message, Mr Cameron said: "Sorry to hear you'll be off for a few weeks. I wish you well - and a speedy return before the General Election."

A BBC spokesman said: "Everyone at the BBC wishes Nick a speedy recovery."
