Maldon treasure hunters were among the hundreds of people taking part in antiques show Flog It.

Presenter Paul Martin and a team of experts from the BBC programme were at Layer Marney Tower in Colchester last week to value items from at least 500 visitors.

Lynne Raymond, of Wentworth Meadows in Maldon, took her 1930s Shelley coffee set.

And Yvonne Kneller, of Essex Road in Maldon, hoped that her father’s book on billiards and three model tractors would make her enough cash to pay for a weekend away.
