Du Maurier paintings to go on display for first time

Paintings created by author Daphne du Maurier are being put on public display for the first time, more than 20 years after her death.

The author, best known for the novel Rebecca, sold millions of books around the world, but painting was part of her intensely private world.

The artworks were created during a turbulent period in her life, and only now have her family allowed the collection to be seen.
