Previously unseen work by County Durham painter Norman Cornish has gone on display.

Much of it is from sketchbooks uncovered by the former miner's family.

They said discovering the 50-year-old drawings - by an artist on the brink of international acclaim - was "like having a seat in the front row of history".

The work is on show at the Greenfield Gallery in Newton Aycliffe until September.
