*Spitting Image Auction: Thatcher beats Brown.

A Spitting Image puppet of Margaret Thatcher made £5,040 at the recent Bonhams auction of Film and Rock Memorabilia. Gordon Brown only made £4,800.

It had been expected that Brown’s imminent elevation to PM would boost the price beyond Thatcher.

Both results were well above the pre-auction estimates.

The Thatcher puppet was purchased by The Imperial War Museum while the Chancellor was flogged off to a private buyer.

A 1978 Superman suit worn by Christopher Reeve went for £8,400.
