Sir Winston Churchill's prized cigar case that still contains two unsmoked cigars has sold today for almost £80,000.<br />

The Art Deco style finely crafted rosewood box was uncovered during a routine valuation at a house on the Devon coast.<br />

Auctioneer Julian Smith had been invited to look at a pocket watch the elderly owners were planning to sell when he spotted the cigar case on the shelf in the lounge.
