A collection of Dinky Toys are readying for auction today, and are set to fetch around £250,000.

2,000 toys were collected by the late John Kinchen from Portsmouth, who sadly passed away last year.

His lifetime collection was then inherited by his two cousins from Devon, and are set to auction off the toys in Exmouth.

Some of the toys are still in boxed sets, with some of the rarer items set to sell for up to £5,000, reports the Exeter Express and Echo.
