Celebrations marking the bicentenary of Charlotte Bronte's birth have kicked off in West Yorkshire.

Charlotte Great and Small is the first in a five year long programme of events which will mark 200 years of the Bronte's births. Branwell Bronte's birth will be celebrated in 2017, as will Emily's in 2018 and Anne's in 2020.

The exhibition includes a letter sent to 'the real Mr Rochester' Constantin Heger alongside clothing, books paintings and writing desks.

The exhibition will run until January 2017.
