Lowry paintings set to fetch £15 million

One of the finest collections of paintings by LS Lowry is going under the hammer and is expected to make more than 15 million pounds.

It's an eye-watering sum, but what's even more amazing is that the paintings were owned by a man who started his career at the age of 14 collecting waste paper door-to-door near Newmarket.
