Possessions belonging to Sir Jimmy Savile will go under the hammer today at a fundraising auction in Leeds.

Items up for grabs include the star’s favourite Rolls Royce Corniche with a £90,000 estimate, to a single brick from the first bingo hall he managed - anything and everything is up for sale.

In total more than 600 items will go under the hammer from 10.30 am and the sale is expected to generate around £250,000 for charity.

The auction is being held in Leeds by Dreweatts auctioneers.
