Nottinghamshire bow maker's 55 years in the industry

Keith Gascoigne has been making bows for 55 years.

He started in the industry aged 15 after his father refused to allow him to work in the mines, like other teenagers leaving school at the time.

Some of Mr Gascoigne's bows have been used by archers in various world championships, and he says he thinks even Robin Hood would have been more successful if he'd used his bows.
