Dan Middleton's Minecraft videos a global hit

11 April 2014 Last updated at 15:11 BST

A 22-year-old from Northamptonshire has become a global phenomenon - and is on his way to becoming wealthy - thanks to a computer game called Minecraft.

Dan Middleton produces videos about the game on YouTube which are viewed by millions of people around the world - mostly children aged between five and 10.

The former Northampton University student creates the videos at his home studio in Wellingborough and is currently notching up more than 70m YouTube hits every month, more than boy band One Direction.
