CARS from across the decades - including a Ford Escort valued at around £100,000 - will go under the hammer at a sale next week.

The Charterhouse online auction of classic and vintage cars takes place on Wednesday (July 27), including car marques from across the decades.

“There is always such a diverse selection of motors in our auctions and this sale has some fabulous cars.” said auctioneer, Richard Bromell.

Top lot in the auction is a Ford Escort valued at £100,000.
