A diary written in shorthand in 1915 has been deciphered thanks to the help of a stranger on Twitter.

The diary belonged to Amy Abethell's great-great uncle Stanley Hooker, from Hull, who died in World War One.

Ms Abethell found the book earlier this month and appealed for someone to translate it.

Now a former shorthand teacher who transcribes it as a hobby has come up with the answers and helped "bring [Mr Hooker] alive" for the family.

Ms Abethell, from Nottingham, found the diary at her parents' house.
