Turner and Constable rivalry revived in London exhibitions

The competition between the British painters John Constable and William Turner has gone down in history as one of the greatest-ever artistic rivalries.

Almost 200 years later, that competition is being revived.

Turner's work is going on display at the Tate Modern, with Constable's paintings on show at the V&A.

Art critic Estelle Lovatt told BBC Breakfast why the parallel exhibitions would have appealed to the artists.
