Inside the Hepworth: Wakefield's new art treasure

Wakefield is soon to have its own contemporary gallery in the shape of the Hepworth, named after the British sculptor Dame Barbara Hepworth.

The gallery, which opens later this week, will be one of the UK's largest purpose-built galleries outside London.

The BBC's arts editor Will Gompertz has been for a look around.
