An 11-year-old boy was more than £8,000 richer today after his collection of memorabilia from fast food chain McDonald's went under the hammer.

Luke Underwood's massive collection of 7,000 promotional items is believed to be the largest of its kind in the UK and attracted bidders from all over the world.

The rare Mcmemorabilia featured the only known complete set of the 101 Dalmations in their original bags, as well as hundreds of Happy Meal boxes, toys and posters.

Last night bidders from across the world battled for parts of the 5,000-piece coveted collection - believed to be the largest of its kind in the UK - in a sale at Unique Auctions in Lincoln.

It was sold off in around 300 lots for a grand total of £8,130, with parts going to buyers from the UK, Germany, America and Japan.
