Antiques Roadshow portrait revealed to be by Van Dyck

A painting bought for £400 and featured on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow has been revealed to be a Sir Anthony Van Dyck portrait worth about £400,000.

The rare painting was bought by Father Jamie MacLeod, who runs a retreat house in the Peak District.

Following a hunch by the programme's presenter Fiona Bruce, a more detailed investigation and careful restoration found it to be genuine.

The portrait will be shown on Antiques Roadshow at 19:00 GMT on BBC One on Sunday.
