CHARLES Dickens lovers were in for a treat when a relative of the Portsmouth-born author gave a talk about his life.

Lucinda Hawksley, who is Dicken’s great-great-great-grandaughter, shared her thoughts on the Victorian novelist at Waterlooville Library on Tuesday.

As part of Lucinda’s hour-long visit she promoted her new book - Charles Dickens - which contains copies of the Victorian novelist’s original manuscripts.

Lucinda, who lives in London, said: ‘The response from everyone was fantastic. The place was packed. It’s amazing to think that Dickens is more famous now than he was during his own lifetime.’
