It has emerged it will being kept at an address in the county and used for charity work and for event hire.

The comedian's widow, Joan, finally put the car up for sale after earlier saying she could not part with it.

The immaculate 1974 chocolate-brown car came complete with Eric's eight-track stereo and favourite tapes.
