Breaking News

A rare signed copy of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf owned by an unnamed Londonderry collector has been sold at auction for £21,000.

The 1925 copy of the Nazi leader's political manifesto went under the hammer at Ludlow Racecourse in Shropshire on Thursday.

Historical documents expert Richard Westwood-Brookes, from the auctioneers Mullock's, said the volume was "a legendary copy of Mein Kampf".

This particular edition was presented to Johann Maurer at Christmas 1925 "in memory of our time together in prison in Landsberg".
