Sir Jimmy Savile's beloved Rolls-Royce sold for £130,000 at auction today, smashing the guide price for the vehicle.

An online bidder won the battle for the silver 2002 Corniche Convertible automatic, complete with the former DJ's personalised numberplate.

The vehicle had been expected to fetch between £60,000 and £90,000.

The sale of 549 lots in Leeds will raise money for the late broadcaster's charitable trust, as ITV Calendar reports.
