A pair of red trousers auctioned for charity after being donated by a mayor famed for his legwear sold for just £51.
Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson is well known for always wearing red trousers, and donated a pair to a local group raising cash for refugees in Calais.
But after eight bidders battled it out on eBay, the trousers were sold for just £51 - the price of a pair of Levi's Standard Fit jeans.
"Whilst this is just a bit of fun, it's for a very serious cause so I'd encourage people to be generous.
In past auctions signed pairs have raised up to £300."
George Ferguson has been caught on video calling a protestor "sick" and "a jerk".

The mayor told him people were enjoying the event and that he should "just go away".
The mayor has yet to comment on the incident, but tweeted about the event being a success.
Marvin Rees will again be battling George Ferguson in next year's election for Bristol mayor.

I am passionate about standing up and fighting for the people of Bristol and the things I know we need for this city to thrive. We need to do a different style of politics and to put people’s needs first and foremost in everything we do."
