Vehicle bays and other signs from the Northampton bus station are to be auctioned.

Sale proceeds will go to Northampton Becket Rotary Club who support a youth cancer charity and groups funding young people with learning difficulties.

The signs will go under the hammer at JP Humbert Auctioneers at Towcester on Wednesday evening.

The bus station, built nearly 40 years ago, is expected to be demolished by explosion in March next year.

Auctioneer Jonathan Humbert said he expected the items to generate a great deal of interest.
