A nuclear bunker built at the height of the Cold War is to be sold at auction at a guide price of 400,000.

The Mistley Secret Bunker on the Essex-Suffolk border and owned by Essex County Council was used as a visitors' centre after decommissioning.

London-based auctioneers Allsop said that the two-storey building near Manningtree, built in 1951, could be transformed into a unique home.

It will be auctioned in central London on 31 October.
