Rare tin toys go under the hammer

Tin toys
The toys form part of one of the largest single collections in the UK

A collection of antique toys thought to be one of the UK's largest ever single collections is to go under the hammer in Norfolk this month.

Arthur Windley, from Norfolk, has been collecting rare tin plate toys for more than 50 years.

The collection includes a bartender making a cocktail and a walking mooing cow, the only known model of its kind.

The toys will be auctioned by Keys of Aylsham on 19 March with viewing taking place the day before.
