Savile's kilt suit fetches £280
A sale of the late Sir Jimmy Savile's possessions and mementoes has got under way with one of the late DJ's Highland suits going for £280.
The tweed jacket and kilt was the first of 549 lots to go under the hammer in Sir Jimmy's home city of Leeds. The lots include thousands of items of memorabilia, which are being sold to raise money for his charitable trust.
His trademark tracksuits and jewellery, including a £12,000 gold and diamond-encrusted Rolex watch, gold identity bracelet and rings, are all on offer along with the first ever chair from his Jim'll Fix It TV show.
The sale kicked off at Savile Hall, at the Royal Armouries, with around 300 people packing the room and many more bidders taking part over the phone and via the internet.
Lot one - the Highland suit - was bought by a local man on the front row. As the auction continued, some items started to soar above their estimates. A Scottish shepherd's crook estimated to sell for between £30 and £60 went for £380.
Nick Beckwith said he was determined to get one of Sir Jimmy's bikes and managed to secure Lot 27 - a Falcon 21-gear mountain bike.
"I just wanted to buy it so one of the bikes would stay in Leeds," said Mr Beckwith, who is from Garforth, near the city. "You don't know, with everybody on the internet and on the phone, where they're going to go. I will ride it round Roundhay Park, which is where Jimmy rode it and had many hours of fun."
A tireless charity worker, Sir Jimmy is thought to have raised more than £40 million for good causes in his lifetime. He died just before his 85th birthday last year and requested his belongings be sold for charity after his death.
Sir Jimmy's distinctive yellow BMW Isetta bubble car went for £22,000 to a woman in the room. Pre-sale estimates were that it would reach £5,000 to £8,000.
The broadcaster's Rolls-Royce went for £130,000 to an internet bidder. The silver Corniche convertible, which only has 4,420 miles on the clock, has the JS 247 number plate - a reference to Radio 1's original medium wave frequency.
