Cash for Colditz from inmate's art


Paintings by a former inmate of the notorious Colditz prisoner-of-war camp are going on sale to help keep it open to the public.

Major William Anderson, from Conwy, was held at the castle near Leipzig for four years and helped fellow prisoners escape.

But his paintings of day-to-day life there have been turned into postcards by his son Stuart and are on sale to tourists visiting Colditz.

Matthew Richards reports.
