Car boot sale buy was 4000-year-old Egyptian artefact

Martin Jackson spotted this lump of wood at a car boot sale and managed to haggle the seller down from £6 to £3.50.

As a keen Egyptologist though, he suspected it might be worth more: he was proved right. It turned out to be an ancient Egyptian artefact dating back more than 4,000 years, worth £4,000.

Mr Jackson, from Northumberland, joined Pam Royle and Ian Payne to talk about his find.
