Sir Jimmy Savile's possessions auctioned


A Rolls Royce which went for £130,000 was the most notable sale in a charity auction of Sir Jimmy Savile's possessions in Leeds.

The DJ's silver Corniche convertible - which he nicknamed "The Beast" - has the number plate JS 247, BBC Radio 1's original medium wave frequency.

Other lots at the auction included cigars, clothing and jewellery.

Sir Jimmy, who died last year just before his 85th birthday, raised £40m for charity during his life.
