This is the emotional moment a female auctioneer broke down in tears when a collection of suffragette memorabilia sold for 16 TIMES the estimated price.

The dozens of postcards and leaflets issued during the struggle for the vote was found in a shoe box which had been hidden under a staircase for 60 years.

It contained the memories of three sisters - Edith, Florence, and Grace Hodgson – who kept badges, sashes, postcards giving women tips for procession marches.
