A derelict pub in a Suffolk town is to go under the hammer. 

The Scarlet Pimpernell in Strasbourg Square, Haverhill, is to be auctioned off on May 24 at the Auction House in London. 

The former pub, which is also known as The Vixen, has stood vacant for a number of years, and has a guide price of £900,000.

Planning permission for 17 flats and retail units had previously been granted for the site, but has since lapsed. 

Listing the property, Auction House London said: "The property comprises a detached building formerly arranged as a public house over ground and first floors. The property requires a program of refurbishment."
