The first soon-to-be installed Weston-super-Mare beach hut has been sold in an online auction for £2,650.

A North Somerset Council spokesman said 23 people made bids on eBay for the one-year lease on the hut.

The unfurnished huts, all in pastel shades of blue, green and lilac, will be situated on the promenade at Royal Sands from next month.

A further 23 leases will be auctioned off every day over the next few weeks, beginning on Monday.
