Lane sells TV scripts for charity

Carla Lane began writing TV sitcom The Liver Birds in 1969
TV writer Carla Lane is selling her original scripts for hit sitcoms Bread, Butterflies and The Liver Birds to raise money for an animal sanctuary.

The autographed scripts are covered with Lane's handwritten notes.

She said she was "no longer" able to donate money to the sanctuary, located near Horsted Keynes in West Sussex.

There were nine series of The Liver Birds before Butterflies was first shown in 1978. Bread was on-air between 1986 and 1991.

"I have so willingly given my money to Animaline over the years," Lane wrote on the Animaline Rescue website, "but am now no longer in a position to do so."

"This message comes with a plea to all those who know our work to help us, however you can."

The scripts are being sold at charity auction site E2Bid.co.uk.
