Winston Churchill's cigar sold for £4.5k

Winston Churchill's half-smoked cigar has been sold at Key's auctions for £4,500.

The abandoned stub had been swiped by a Downing Street aide, Nellie Goble, and sent to a relative to inspire them. The auction house had estimated it at a mere £350, but as has often happened with Churchill memorabilia, bidders valued it much higher.
