James Webb, 27 and Kaylie Tilley, 30, along with their five children, were given the opportunity to welcome the archbishop by their school, Peterhouse Primary Academy.

Mr Webb, said: 'He asked about our everyday lives and how we cope with things, he also complimented us on how well our home and children were presented.

'We joined him in a prayer, he blessed me, our home and my family, he was the nicest guy I have ever met.'

The archbishop, who had his coffee with no sugar and a dash of milk, stayed in their home for around 45 minutes.
