Documentary celebrates the life of Britain's Elvis

Billy Fury was often described as Britain's answer to Elvis and as one of the biggest stars of the 1960s, he left a powerful legacy.

The Beatles once auditioned to be his backing band, and Morrissey credited him with inspiring his quiff.

Now a new documentary all about him is opening in cinemas, looking at the highs and lows of a life that ended prematurely.

Colin Paterson reports.
