Historic ferry items auctioned

An anchor and wheel from the last steamship to serve the Isle of Man have been sold at auction in the UK.

The items from the King Orry went under the hammer at auctioneers Lambert and Foster on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent this week.

The King Orry served the Island for the Steam Packet between 1946 and 1975, and was broken up in 1978.

The wheel was bought by a man who says he's planning to give it a new home on the Norfolk Broads.
