A 27-year-old Volvo 340 with just 132 miles on the clock has sold for £5,000 at auction.

The car, whose elderly owner gave up driving soon after buying it, was in showroom condition apart from one small scratch on it.

Anglia Car Auctions, which handled the sale, said the vehicle was discovered in a garage where it had been kept since 1987, after its owner passed away. A Volvo of the same vintage with average mileage for its age would be worth around £250.
