Sir Jimmy's belongings under the hammer

A lifetime of bling, string running vests, cigars, terrible gold tracksuits and even a top of the range Rolls Royce went under the hammer in Leeds today as Sir Jimmy Savile's trademark possessions were sold off for charity.

There has probably never been an auction like it, but then Jimmy was unique - and hundreds of his fans and simply the curious turned up to bid for a little piece of the showman's life. Jon Hill joined them.
