Churchill's Land Rover up for sale

A LAND ROVER made specifically for Sir Winston Churchill is going under the hammer at the Sutton saleground near Ely in Cambridgeshire, and is expected to make around £60,000.

The Series 1 Land Rover - with a number plate UKE 80 - was presented to Churchill on his 80th birthday in 1954, and comes complete with its original buff log book that declares the former prime minister and war leader as its first owner.

The Land Rover - which has been stored in a shed for the past 35 years and has just 12,000 miles on the clock - is being sold in a specialist vintage sale on October 20.
