Illustrator Quentin Blake passes his skills on in Hastings

One of the UK's best-known illustrators has agreed to lend his skills to a summer festival of drawing at the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, East Sussex, where he has a home.

Sir Quentin Blake - famed for bringing the novels of Roald Dahl to life - is hoping to encourage children in particular to come to the gallery.

BBC South East Today reporter John Young spoke to him, along with Liz Gilmore, director of the Jerwood Gallery.
