Edward Lear art exhibition opens

Edward Lear is best known for his literary nonsense - he wrote poems ranging from limericks to the Owl and the Pussycat.

But he was also a talented artist and to celebrate the bicentenary of his birth, a new exhibition of his artwork is on show at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.

It was opened by Sir David Attenborough.
