Potburys of Sidmouth auction rooms, in Temple Street, will feature in a future episode of BBC Antiques Road Trip after presenters from the show visited the town on Tuesday.

The experts brought along 10 items previously purchased in antique shops around the South West, including a rare set of 19th century egg weight scales,
The auction was conducted by auctioneer Philip Hurst and all 10 items were sold.
