A large private collection of Sir Winston Churchill memorabilia is expected to raise about £1m when the first part of it is sold next month.

Auction house Christie's said the material, which includes diary entries, letters and an unsmoked cigar, provided a "fascinating insight" into his life.

The former prime minister's belongings were amassed by Malcolm S Forbes Jr over more than 30 years.

The collection will be sold in three parts, the first in London on 2 June.
