In a charity event that raised £1 million, The Ivy sold everything from its finest artwork to its pane glass window and even the sign for the ladies' toilet.

A seat at the table that served dinner to Laurence Olivier and Diana, Princess of Wales was last night priced at £6,000 after the restaurant's top table went under the hammer.

Once one of the most difficult places to pass through in London, The Ivy's oak front door fetched £27,500.

He is normally tricky to spot, but around 800 people dressed up as Where's Wally were in Victoria Park in Hackney today.

The National Literacy Trust held a fun run, calling on everyone to wear bobble hats, stripy tops and glasses to raise money for the charity.

These funds will be put into improving literacy in deprived communities across the UK.

There was a 5K and 10K event and people could either walk, jog or run their way around the park.

Last year over a thousand Wallys took part, raising more than £60,000 for the National Literacy Trust.

That money provides books and storytelling events for children from low-income homes and one-to-one support for parents who are not confident with literacy.
