A brush with the law - forger turns fine artist

He spent time in prison for forgery, but now David Henty has found a better use for his artistic skills.

David, from Saltdean in Sussex, denies his paintings are fakes, but not everyone agrees.

Ebay, for example, has banned him, as Malcolm Shaw reports.
