A SIDMOUTH auctioneer is warning people about companies which offer instant cash for gold and silver.

Michael Willey from Potburys of Sidmouth says the 'get rich quick' process is a chancy business.

He said: "Our judgement is that it is very risky as auctions offer a broader range of competition provided realistic reserves are placed."

Mr Willey said because of financial constraints and poor interest rates, many savers are turning to alternative investments.

Among the items sold were a silver novelty Vesta box for �1,300, a raw gold nugget brooch sold for �560 and a rare 19th century oil painting of St Kilda and cottages in Branscombe for �1,020.
