Was David Cameron's "ad-lib" speech scripted?

Paul Walter has questioned the impression given by many in the media that David Cameron's speech was unscripted. He points to a Daily Mirror piece, written by Kevin McGuire which suggests that the speech writer was seen receiving congratulations from fellow Tories outside Euston station.

Throughout the speech David Cameron was certainly moving his head from side to side, continuously, in the same way that speakers do when reading from an autocue.
