Land Securities' Mike Hussey has revealed that maverick Frenchman Jean Nouvel nearly gave him a heart attack during Land Sec's first ever meeting with City planners for its One New Change project. He relates: 'Jean walked in with a box and we all presumed it was a model of the scheme.

I nearly fell off my chair when he whipped off the lid revealing a model of a Stealth Bomber'.
