Island that inspired National Trust finally given to group

The island that inspired the foundation of the National Trust has been gifted to the conservation charity after more than a century in private hands.

Sitting in the middle of the Lake District, Grasmere Island was left to the Trust by its former owner in her will.

Dave Guest has been for a visit.
