Boris Johnson and David Cameron were spotted ‘bopping along’ to music in a New York restaurant just hours after a candlelit vigil was held in London’s Trafalgar Square for the victims of the Westminster terror attack.

The two were snapped leaving the famous Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem, New York City, by journalist Joanna Geary, who tweeted blurry pictures of the encounter.

The Foreign Secretary and former Prime Minister were said to have been seen by a fellow diner ‘dad dancing’ music in the soul food eatery, reports The Mirror.

Despite clashing over Brexit, the two appear to have reconciled.

The cosy evening took place just one day after the terrorist attack carried out by Khalid Masood in which five people were killed – including PC Keith Palmer – and 40 injured.

Critics suggested that it was in poor taste to enjoy an evening of revelry just hours after Londoners attended a candlelit vigil for the victims.

“I appreciate that life must go on but this sort of behaviour is inappropriate at best and downright disrespectful at worst,” said Labour MP Stephen Pound, reports The Mirror.

Both of the Old Etonians had earlier expressed their condolences for those affected.

Following the attack, Johnson tweeted: “Heartbreaking. This is not the first attack on London or our Parliament – and won’t be the last – but our values will prevail”.

He followed this up with another tweet reading: “Nations around the world are pouring out their sympathies for us today. This is a fight we’re all in together”.

He later met with US Vice President Pence before leading the United Nations Security Council in a minute’s silence for the victims of the atrocity.

In the aftermath of the Westminster attack, Cameron tweeted: “My thoughts with the families of those injured & killed. Those seeking to attack our democracy with these barbarous methods will never win”.
