Dubbed the 'story lady' disabled actor and writer Steph Lacey from Manchester is writing bespoke stories for children every day of the lockdown.

She was appearing in the theatre in Oliver Twist, but when it closed due to the pandemic she wondered how she could use her skills to help struggling parents.

Among the stories are The New Guitar written for Lennon, his cousin Laila in Bolton and his Auntie Julie, who's still searching for her Prince Charming.

Steph has written 20 stories so far and says she'll continue throughout the lockdown.

She can be contacted on twitter @StephieLacey or email storylady20@gmail.com and asks for some fun facts and the children she's writing for.

Steph's been telling Elaine Willcox how she came up with the idea.
