A 300-year-old manuscript found in rubbish during a house clearance is expected to fetch a six-figure sum at auction next month.

The 18th Century handwritten Jewish religious text was discovered in a cardboard box in a garage in Bury.

The unique work is attracting attention from Jewish communities in the US and the Middle East.
