London 2012 auction sees Tom Daley trunks sold for £540
A pair of Tom Daley's Team GB swimming trunks have sold for £540 at an auction of items from the London 2012 Games.

Thousands of items are being sold at a two-day auction at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

They include costumes from the opening and closing ceremonies, and equipment signed by medal winners Jessica Ennis, Bradley Wiggins and Chris Hoy.

The trunks, which were not worn by Daley at the Games, were framed and signed.

A Team GB cycling jersey signed by medal-winners Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton sold for £640.

Other items included a scarecrow used in the opening ceremony, which sold for more than £2,000, and an Olympic torch signed by gold medal-winning sailor Ben Ainsley that also reached £2,000.

Money raised from the auction will go to Locog, the Games' organisers.
Volunteer 'heroes'

Locog director Chris Holmes said: "If there are any profits we will be making a statement in May about where they will be distributed."

Volunteers who worked at the Games will be allowed into the auction an hour earlier than the general public.

Former 5,000m world record holder David Moorcroft said: "The athletes may have been the stars but the volunteers were the heroes."

Mr Moorcroft is director of sport for Join In, which encourages people to help out at sports clubs and community groups around the UK.
