Senior valuer Steven Moore said: “We had people bringing in a lot of silver and jewellery, things that people have realised may be valuable.

“It’s great to go out and take our services into the community, it’s like bringing what we do to the people.

“People want to know what things are worth so it’s great to be able to guide them.”

Finds on the day included a print worth more than £100 that had been bought for just £1 at a car boot sale.
