Tracey Emin's bed artwork to be auctioned

Tracey Emin has said she would like her bed artwork to go on public display in Britain when it goes on auction for the first time.

The piece, which was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 1999, is expected to fetch between £800,000 and £1.2 million when it is sold at Christie's on Tuesday by art collector Charles Saatchi.

BBC London's Helen Drew spoke to Ms Emin, Francis Outred, the head of contemporary art at Christie's, and art dealer Richard Grindy from the Rook & Raven Gallery.
