First Wimbledon champion remembered in Solihull

The first woman to win the Wimbledon ladies singles championship, Maud Watson, has been praised for changing women's sport.

Miss Watson first won Wimbledon in 1884.

A museum dedicated to her in her home village of Berkswell, near Solihull in the West Midlands, has closed due to lack of funds, but on the eve of this year's women's final, local people came together to pay tribute.
