A toy collector has paid £240 for a vintage plastic bag.

The Palitoy We Care bag from the Leicestershire factory's staff shop featured logos from Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back, Play-Doh and Strawberry Shortcake, among other brands.

It had an estimate of £20-£30 but sold for eight times that top figure at Vectis Auction House in Thornaby, Teesside.
