Holkham's Lady Glenconner launches new mystery

If it is spooky you want then Holkham Hall certainly seems to fit the bill, says Lady Anne Glenconner who has just written a new novel, A Haunting At Holkham.

The 89-year-old author says the mystery is based in part on true events from her childhood growing up on the Holkham estate.

But she has also revealed that recently the hall was subject to an exorcism!
