Enid Blyton: The magic of children's author lives on

From Noddy to the Famous Five, Enid Blyton's stories have been capturing children's imaginations for decades.

Six hundred million copies of her books have sold worldwide, and they have been translated into 90 languages.

In all, she produced more than 700 books in her career, writing one a week at the peak of her powers.

Now a new collection from her writing days is on show in Canterbury.

Lynda Hardy has been taking a look at a life not without its controversial aspects.
