"He turned up unexpectedly at first. He was very polite, interested in what we had to say.

"What was really good was when I asked him why he was here himself he said: `I want to work from the ground upwards, I don`t want to leave it to someone else.` "We offered him a cup of tea and he said, "Thank you very much, one sugar please."

We got the kettle on for him and I was surprised he accepted it," a source said.
