A gallery celebrating the work of designer William Morris has reopened following a £5m refurbishment.

The world famous designs of Morris, who was born in Walthamstow in 1834, are on show at the home in which he grew up and which is now the gallery celebrating his work.

BBC London's Alice Bhandhukravi spoke to Lorna Lee from Waltham Forest Council and Tony Chambers, editor of Wallpaper magazine, about the Victorian artist.
