Art meets car boot sale in Margate

Hundreds of people flocked to an art sale with a difference in Margate this afternoon.

The "art car boot" event saw new works from an array of local artists alongside those from big names including Margate's own Tracey Emin; Jim Moir - otherwise known as Vic Reeves - and Sir Peter Blake. The sale is a chance for the public to buy art directly from its creator.

Here's a few shots of the event:

Vic's big night out in his garden shed

Now, he's probably best known for his TV shows Shooting Stars and Big Night Out (he even appeared on ITV's I'm A Celebrity!) but did you know the acclaimed comedian Vic Reeves has another string to his bow?

From the comfort of his shed in Kent, Vic whiles away many happy hours painting and sculpting. Now, under his real name of Jim Moir, he's putting many of his finest pieces up for sale.

More than 100 lots went on display this morning at an auction house at Westenhanger railway station near Folkestone. The Principal Auctioneer and Valuer is The TV Antiques expert Michael Hogben. Andrea Thomas has been to take a look at the collection.
