ACTING legend Richard Wilson has officially opened a newly refurbished £300,00 library in Greenock.

The One Foot in the Grave and Merlin star was back in his home town to cut the ribbon at the South West Library at Barrs Cottage - a place he visited regularly as a youngster.

Mr Wilson grew up in Dunlop Street and was a pupil at Lady Alice Primary and often popped along the street to the library.

The veteran actor met with dozens of fans and spoke with the current crop of school kids from his old school.

He said: "Down south libraries have been closed all over the place so it's wonderful to see a refurbished building like this."
