A storm has engulfed Neil Woodford after his mega fund was forced to close its doors and lock investors in. 

The row has shifted from just the Woodford Equity Income fund that had the shutters pulled down, to the fund manager's Woodford Patient Capital trust, his investment firm itself and the companies it holds. 

What can DIY investors learn from the affair in terms of how they manage their own money, keep an eye on what's going on in the funds they hold, and whether an investment trust would be a better option? 

Furthermore, what will happen next for Britain's most famous fund manager, his business and his investors? 

Simon Lambert and Richard Hunter discuss the Woodford blowout on the Investing Show.
