She said: "This wonderful old chap is called Brian and comes from Nottingham on the train to play the piano in Frenchgate centre.

"He is marvelous and does it purely because he loves it. I was shopping and he treated me to a mini concert".

She continued: "He played all my favourite tunes - without any music - and finished off with some xmas tunes.

"What a lovely kind-hearted man. Made my xmas!"
