World Cup medal saved by lottery money?

The British sports minister, Tony Banks, has suggested using national lottery money to buy for the nation the footballing medals and trophies of Bobby Moore, who captained England's World Cup-winning team in 1966.

Bobby Moore's first wife is reported to be planning to auction the memorabilia.

Mr Banks says they are part of Britain's history and should stay in the country.
