The Prime Minister turned apprentice during his recent visit to MS Oakes Joinery in Lowestoft and was taught by the company's joining director Steve Butcher.

The 41-year-old, who started as an apprentice 25 years ago, was given a hand with his Douglas Fir Garage Door by the premier, which will be winging its way to Aldeburgh when it is complete.

“He was fine. He just got on with it and I think he enjoyed it. He was our new apprentice,” he said.

Mr Butcher said he had not yet decided how to vote in the upcoming election and was preoccupied with a busy order book.

“It is usually quiet after Christmas. This is the first year we have been stacked up after Christmas. We have been working long hours.”
