George W Bush exhibits paintings

An exhibit of paintings of world leaders by former US President George W Bush is to open at his presidential library in Texas.

Former US President George W Bush, who has said he is admittedly "not a great painter", will open a public exhibit of his works on Saturday.

On display will be 24 portraits of world leaders he met while president, including Tony Blair, Angela Merkel and the Dalai Lama.

The BBC's Nick Bryant was given a preview of the gallery.
