Theresa May struggles on Downing Street as much-loved kitten heel gets stuck in pavement

Those shoes weren’t made for walking! Theresa May struggles as much-loved kitten heel gets stuck in Downing Street pavement

She's almost as well-known for trademark kitten heels as her political career.

But Theresa May was probably wishing she wore flats today – after getting her shoe stuck in a pavement crack in Downing Street.

The Home Secretary was on her way to attend a weekly Cabinet meeting at No10 when the unfortunate incident took place.

Latest crackdown: Theresa May's kitten heel got stuck in the pavement as she headed to No10 for a weekly Cabinet meeting

The 55-year-old had to remove her foot and rest it on the pavement while she fished her shoe out of the crack.

Luckily, she emerged unscathed – and saw the funny side as she shared a laugh with photographers.

The Tory poltician looked elegant as usual in monochrome heels, teamed with a black coat and red scarf.

Laughing it off: Luckily, the Home Secretary saw the funny side and emerged unscathed… and unlikely to abandon kitten heels anytime soon

Mrs May, who refuses to comment on her wardrobe, recently posed for a cover shoot for a Total Politics magazine interview.

She also discussed sexism and the lack of women MPs, claiming she ‘hated’ the principle of using positive discrimination to boost numbers of women in business.

Theresa said: 'The ultimate goal, in any situation, must be that nobody thinks twice about whether it’s a man or a woman in front of them.’

AND IT LOOKS AS THOUGH THERESA MAY'S NOT THE ONLY ONE TO FALL VICTIM TO THE DOWNING STREET PAVEMENT….
