Trevor Baines jewellery auction raises more than £20k

Jewellery, watches and photographs belonging to the jailed millionaire Trevor Baines have been auctioned to help pay off his debts.

Eighty-nine lots from the Liverpool-born businessman's Africa House home in Douglas were sold by the Isle of Man coroner.

The auction included jewellery, watches, two photos of Adolf Hitler, and a pair of bronze baboons.

The 72-year-old was convicted of money laundering in September 2009. Following a five-week trial in the Isle of Man he was jailed for six years.

The auction raised more than £20,000 with his personal registration plate selling for £1,600
