A rare find discovered on Suffolk shores is expected to fetch hundreds of pounds at an auction next week.

The fossilised dinosaur egg, found on the Suffolk coast in 2013, measures in at around 21cm in length.

Stowmarket based auctioneers Bishop and Miller believe the unusual lot could attract auction interest between £500 and £700.

It is expected to go under the hammer as part of their Coins and Militaria sale on Saturday October 7.

More than 900 lots will be sold at the auction on the Charles Industrial Estate.
