The last letter known to be written on the ill-fated Titanic sold for a world record £119,000 at auction today.
The letter was penned by second class passenger Esther Hart just hours before the liner struck an iceberg on Sunday April 14, 1912.
The £119,000 price tag shattered the previous record for a Titanic-related letter, which had stood at £94,000, auctioneers said. The letter, headed On board 'Titanic' and written on Titanic stationery, comescomplete with an envelope embossed with the White Star Line flag.
