Bond fans spend thousands at sale

Sir Roger Moore holds a mask of current James Bond actor Daniel Craig at Christie's 50 Years of James Bond Sale

Wealthy James Bond lovers were in Double-O heaven when they spent thousands of pounds in a fiercely contested auction of 007 memorabilia.

Bidding was so competitive they almost needed a licence to thrill as they fought each other for the pieces of movie and book history.

A navy, wool Tom Ford suit worn by Daniel Craig in the new Skyfall film - out on October 26 - was estimated to sell for between £2,000 and £3,000 but fetched £46,850 (including buyer's premium).

There were only 11 lots for sale at Christie's in London on Friday night with items introduced by figures such as Sir Roger Moore and comedian David Walliams.

The complete works of Ian Fleming, the spy's creator, were estimated to sell for between £10,000 and £15,000.

They sold for a stunning £91,250 as bidders battled for the collection.
