Watch bought for £69 sold for just under £100,000

A Rolex watch bought for £69 was sold for just short of £100,000 at an auction in Wiltshire.

The exceptionally rare Rolex Submariner, bought from a jewellery shop in Doncaster, fetched £99,200 at Gardiner Houlgate auctioneers in Corsham.

Commenting on the watch, which he hoped would fetch over £100,000, auctioneer Dave Hare said: “On the day, so much depends on the condition of the watch.

“In this case, there had been some deterioration on the dial, which does impact on how much top international collectors are willing to spend. The same watch in slightly better condition would certainly break through the £100,000 barrier.”

Oh the irony

There were huge delays on the M62 earlier today because of an upturned Royal Mail lorry. Queues stretched back from the accident near Eccles for nearly 15 miles.

Greater Manchester police said the driver escaped with minor injures.

The slogan on the side of the lorry though...

Police launch cyber skills competition for young people

West Yorkshire Police want young people to test their cyber abilities in a new competition.

11 to 17-year-olds will play an online game and then submit an application, complete with the completed game code.

64 correct entries will then be selected for the live final to be held on Saturday 18 August.

All finalists will receive a certificate and there will be prizes for the winners.

Participants will also be told about possible career paths in IT once they leave school.

Assistant Chief Constable Russ Foster of West Yorkshire Police, said: “The threat posed by cyber crime and cyber enabled crime is a rapidly growing issue – the computer has become the new crow-bar for many criminals.

“Warning and informing people about the threat posed by cyber crime is key to making life more difficult for criminals.”
