Kitty in Boots: Who is the new Beatrix Potter character?

A new story written by Beatrix Potter more than 100 years ago, featuring Peter Rabbit, is to be published for the first time.

The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots was rediscovered by publisher Jo Hanks, who told the Today programme how she found the manuscript in the V&A archive.

Patricia Routledge, an actress who played Beatrix in the 1990s and who is a patron of the Beatrix Potter Society, read the opening page of the story on the programme.
