Tonight, Dom Littlewood told us about a little known, police managed website - www.bumblebeeauctions.co.uk.

The website sells lost property that's handed in and not claimed after a month, seized goods, false assets, shop-lifted goods and so on.

Fourteen police forces currently use the service: Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Devon & Cornwall, Wiltshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Thames Valley, North and West Yorkshire, Kent and Cumbria.

Unusual items that have been sold on Bumblebee include an industrial fog machine, a brass diver's helmet and crash barriers from Sussex.
