A brooch by the Victorian designer and architect William Burges has sold for £31,000 at auction in Leicestershire.

The brooch featured on BBC One's Antiques Roadshow when jewellery expert Geoffrey Munn showed sketches of what he called his "most wanted" items.

Jill Cousins from Market Harborough spotted a brooch she owned among the items pictured.

She had planned to sell it at a local market two days after the show.
