A BENTLEY car, a Range Rover, and Rolex watches are just some of the many luxurious items that could be yours for knock-down prices in Newport this evening.

These high value proceeds of crime will be going under the hammer at Wilson's Auctions as part of the Unreserved Government Auction at Wilsons Auctions in Usk Way.

The main item will be a Bentley Mulsanne V8 Auto, which certainly has a colourful past, having previously been at the centre of an international money laundering investigation carried out by the National Crime Agency. It was later seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
