The shadow chancellor put on his dancing shoes for an energetic line dancing session with pensioners in Kilburn this afternoon.

Labour’s Ed Balls joined the Older People’s Line Dancing class at Kingsgate Community Centre, in Kingsgate Road, today and enthusiastically showed off his moves alongside Tulip Siddiq, Labour parliamentary candidate for Hampstead and Kilburn.

Mr Balls met workers at the community centre before disposing of his jacket and tie for a rigorous line dancing session with a throng of older ladies.
