Author Laura James wants to help people diagnosed with autism later in life

Laura James spent her childhood feeling different and was diagnosed with autism at the age of 45.

She's now written a book to help others cope with the feelings of isolation she felt.

Ms James said: "I wanted other women and girls like me to realise they're not alone in the world."

She lives in Norfolk with her husband and four children and hopes the book will "bust all the myths and stereotypes" that surround the condition.
