New head gardener at Monet's garden in Giverny is British

Claude Monet's garden in Giverny was immortalised in paint by the impressionist artist.

Millions of people have seen and admired his paintings of the water lilies and the Japanese bridge.

The gardens still attract thousands of visitors each year and are kept as Monet designed them.

Now there is a new head gardener - and he is British.

The BBC's Christian Fraser went to meet him.
