Miner Jimmy Kay's 'lost' artwork on show

The lost paintings of a County Durham miner have been put on show after his family discovered them on an auction website.

Jimmy Kays sketched life around him in the first half of the 20th Century.

But much of his artwork disappeared and was thought to be lost until it was put up for sale online.

Look North's Andrew Hartley reports.
