Cathedral finds composer graffiti

21 June 2013 Last updated at 20:23 BST

Graffiti dating back 375 years has been uncovered at Exeter Cathedral.

A name scratched into the building's stonework dated 1638 is that of 17th Century composer Matthew Locke, who was a chorister there before going on to write music for the king.

The discovery was made after the cathedral's organ was removed for restoration, as John Danks reports.
