Former nuclear bunker up for sale

Bunker near Twyford
The bunker has 2ft (60cm) thick walls and steel doors

A former nuclear bunker in Hampshire which could house up to 30 people is to be auctioned for more than 240,000.

The bunker, near Twyford village, was originally built in 1905 as a covered reservoir before being transformed into a nuclear bunker during the Cold War.

Auctioneers Clive Emson admit they have no idea who would want a property which has parking for 13 cars and the ability to withstand a nuclear strike.

The bunker has been used by computer security companies since 1997.

The auction is due to take place on 16 December.
