Sir Jimmy's Rolls-Royce sells for £130,000

The car - which Sir Jimmy called "The Beast" and still has his personalised JS 247 plate - is expected to be the highest priced single item at the sale in Leeds.

It was bought by an internet buyer as hundreds of people packed Savile Hall in the Royal Armouries complex.
