Rare pictures of lighthouse construction up for auction

It's one of the most iconic sights along the English coastline - and now unique images capturing the construction of Beachy Head lighthouse have gone up for auction. The red and white striped structure in Sussex took two years to build, more than a hundred years ago. The winning bid for the remarkable pictures came from archivists in Brighton. John Ryall has been to see them.
