The only surviving letter believed to have been written on board Titanic is expected to fetch up to £100,000 when it goes under the hammer in Wiltshire this afternoon.

The letter, written on Titanic stationery, was written by second class passenger Esther Hart just hours before the liner struck an iceberg on Sunday April 14, 1912.
