A mother who worked on the Tomb Raider series of games has set up her own video game company which is releasing its first project.

Anna Marsh, from Long Eaton in Derbyshire, is project manager at Lady Shotgun.

She created the company after trying to juggle childcare while working full time.

She began the company at the end of last year with three other women she knew from the industry who'd also become mothers.

After 10 months in development, the company is getting ready to release its first title - Buddha Finger - this week.

She first began computer programming when she was 12 years old after her parents gave her a ZX Spectrum.
