Going, going gone... Any hopes the owner of this sporty number had of selling their classic car at auction hit the skids when it came to a sticky end on Tuesday.

Police said the Blue TVR sports car fell off the back off a car transporter at the junction of St Johns Road and Manchester Road just before 3pm on Tuesday afternoon.

The vehicle, believed to be one of many set to go under the hammer at a classic car auction, at the Pavilion Gardens, today (Thursday) was recovered just after 4pm.

Police enquiries into the accident are continuing.
