A painting bought for just £2 could fetch over £1,000 at auction in Weymouth today (Friday 23rd August).

The acrylic "turner like" painting of Oxford measures 30 by 40 inches and has drawn a lot of interest from local buyers.

It has an estimated value of between £800 and £1,200.

Paul Cartlidge from the Brewers Quay Auction House says it's a great find for the original price of £2 and there are more gems hidden out there;

"They're out there, people just have to look and find them. You will find a gem that goes to auction making you a lot of money."
