A collection of Harry Houdini's cast iron shackles and locks have emerged for sale for £23,000.<br />
<br />
The sale features 11 wrist, body and ankle shackles he used during his legendary acts of escapology.<br />
<br />
Houdini had requested in his will that his treasured implements were destroyed after his death.<br />
<br />
However, some of these items were purchased by mentalist Joseph Dunninger from Houdini's widow Bess.
