Bronte sisters' classics hit the big screen

A new film adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre opens in UK cinemas on Friday and Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights premiered at the Venice Film Festival this week.

The sisters wrote their classics in the West Yorkshire village of Haworth, which draws thousands of Bronte fans every year.

The BBC's Jenny Hill went to see if the village was ready for a new influx of film fans.
