A set of keys from the Titanic, which were previously owned by a Jersey collector, has sold for twice the estimate at auction.

David Gainsborough Roberts put the set of four up for auction at Christies in London.

The keys, which are thought to have belonged to Samuel Ernest Hemming, the lamp trimmer on board the ship, sold for £20,000 yesterday evening.

Gainsborough Roberts also sold a boxing World Heavywight Title belt from William Harrison 'Jack' Dempsey. It brought £25,000.
