Woman 'hits Renoir jackpot'

An original painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir is thought to have been been discovered in the US state of Virginia.

The painting was found at a flea market but now is set to be auctioned off at the end of September. Experts believe it is "Paysage Bords De Seine," one of Renoir's river scenes along the Seine river.

The painting is thought to be worth more than $100,000 (£62,500) - much more than the woman who originally purchased it paid.
