AN entrepreneur invited the man who inspired him to succeed to open his latest venture.

Michael Ramsay set up Ramsay Studio Glass, in Consett, seven years ago, with the help of the Prince's Trust.

The business has moved to bigger premises in the Rear House Gallery, Front Street, Stanley.

Mr Ramsay, 28, was guided by the Trust's Durham business manager, David Beavis, now the charity's regional director, and invited him back to open the new building.

"We have been progressing nicely and needed to move from our original base in Consett to a larger one," said Mr Ramsay.

Mr Beavis said: "Helping young people like Michael is what the Prince's Trust is all about."
