The advert attracted several bids
A 10-year-old girl's attempt to "sell" her grandmother has been stopped by the internet auction site eBay.
Zoe Pemberton advertised her grandmother Marion Goodall, 61, of Clacton, Essex, on the site.
Zoe described Mrs Goodall as "annoying" but "cuddly" in her joke listing which received 27 bids, one for more than £2,000, before it was removed.
EBay removed the advertisement because the site does not allow humans to be bought and sold.
An eBay spokeswoman said: "Obviously we have rules about the selling of people.
"We had to take it down but it was quite amusing and there were a number of offers."
The spokeswoman added: "The advert was done with the full knowledge of grandma.
"We do get these kind of things from time to time."
