A grandmother from Norfolk is celebrating her 80th birthday with the publication of her first book.

It's a memoir telling of the "volcanic explosion" which happened when Joan Khurody told her parents she was marrying an Indian boy she'd met at university and was moving to his homeland.

That was in 1959 when there was a lot more prejudice about interracial marriages.
