Sooty puppet to go under hammer in Dorset


The Sooty puppet used by Matthew Corbett in his last stage show will go under the hammer in Dorset later.

Duke's Auctioneers is selling Sooty to raise money for the charity Whizz-Kidz, which provides wheelchairs for disabled children.

It is expected to fetch between £300 and £500 at the sale in Dorchester.

BBC Radio Solent's Harry Crawford interviewed "Sweep" and Matthew Denney from Duke's.
