Seamus Heaney: Family donates poet's items to new £4m centre dedicated to his life

A new visitors' centre dedicated to the life and work of Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney aims to attract 35,000 visitors a year.

The £4m Seamus Heaney HomePlace centre, built on the site of a former police station in Bellaghy in County Londonderry, is due to open in September.

BBC News NI's arts correspondent Robbie Meredith joined the poet's family and friends for an early look.
