A designer in Derbyshire says he has come up with a new and dramatically more efficient way of making furniture.

Gavin Munro grows young trees directly into the shape of chairs, lamps and mirror frames.

Mr Munro's project has been going for the past nine years and this year the first lot of trees will be harvested to be sold as the finished products.

He told BBC News about his hope for the future of Full Grown, his unique business.
