A painting which hangs at the former home of Sir Francis Drake in Devon has been confirmed as an original Rembrandt.

The self-portrait of the Dutch master at Buckland Abbey was thought to have been done by one of his pupils. But an investigation by the world's leading Rembrandt expert, Ernst van de Wetering, found the painting was done by the artist himself.

The National Trust says it could be worth up to £20 million.
