Priest bought Van Dyck art worth £500,000 'for the frame'
A priest, who snapped up an original Van Dyck portrait for £400 in an antiques shop, says he bought the painting "for the frame."
The painting, which was revealed to be a Van Dyck on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow, is expected to sell for £500,000 when it is auctioned later this year.
Father Jamie MacLeod, who found the artwork in Cheshire 12 years ago, told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "I didn't take to the painting. I fell in love with the frame. There was something about it."
