Tapestry marks 750th Battle of Lewes anniversary

A tapestry has been created to mark the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Lewes in 1264.

The work, which took 55 people more than two years to make, draws on techniques used to create the Bayeux Tapestry almost 1,000 years ago.

When complete, it is set to be displayed at Lewes Castle in time for the anniversary next year.

BBC South East Today's Dan Maclaren spoke to tapestry designer Tom Walker and lead embroiderer Maggie Lanning.
