Les Dawson's romantic novel found

The family of comedian Les Dawson have told BBC One's Inside Out North West they are hoping to finish and publish a romantic thriller novel he was writing under a female pseudonym before his death.

Dawson, who died 21 years ago, wrote An Echo of Shadows under the name Maria Brett-Cooper.

They recently found the 110-page manuscript when moving house. Dawson's daughter Charlotte Gave Inside Out reporter Chris Hawkins a look at the work.
