Dorset fossil hunter's finds to be housed in own museum

More than 2,000 fossils collected by an amateur treasure hunter are to be housed in an interactive museum.

Plans for the museum in Kimmeridge on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset have received a £2.7m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Currently, Steve Etches stores his finds in his own double garage.

BBC South Today's Briony Leyland went to meet him.
