One-of-a-kind artefacts from the Great Train Robbery, which occurred just three miles from Linslade in Ledburn, scooped more than £20,000 under the hammer last Wednesday.

The 1963 heist proved its enduring allure during the auction held in Towcester, Northamptonshire, as the items interested buyers from the US and Japan, as well as from across the UK.

A watch worn by Ronnie Biggs during the robbery fetched £900, while a £1 note that was stolen at the time went for £750.

Money from a Monopoly set, which was used by the robbers after they holed up at a farm near Aylesbury, was sold for £400.
