A former cinema in Coventry has sold for £191,000 at auction.

The Dovedale picture house, in Longford, opened its doors in 1929. Its guide price had been set from £120,000-£140,000 on Thursday.

The site has planning permission to be converted into six houses and three apartments.

Sally Smith, of Loveitts auctioneers, said the buyer was a businessman and she did not yet know his future plans for the building.
