“A real gentleman”: local landlord remembers Sir Roger Moore

A landlord from Coventry has shared his memories of film star Sir Roger Moore, who has died aged 89.

Leigh Watts, who runs the Greyhound Inn on Sutton Stop by the canal, told the BBC that the James Bond star once popped in for lunch on his way up north.

Mr Watts said the star was “very obliging” when fans recognised him in the pub.

“[He was] a real gentleman,” said Mr Watts.

“One or two [of the customers] asked if they…could have a picture with him and he was very obliging,” he added.
