A museum devoted to the work of children's author Roald Dahl has won its fight over a wrong tax payment.

The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, said tax paid on its £500,000 revamp had been incorrectly classified.

A tax tribunal dismissed claims about several payments but said VAT on money spent creating a book about Dahl's writing hut was wrongly categorised.

Dahl died in 1990 and was buried in Great Missenden where he had lived.
