A collection of memorabilia from the Titanic is believed to have broken a world record at auction.

Among more than 370 lots in the sale in Wiltshire was a miniature portrait retrieved from the ocean, which sold for £58,000.

It was said to be a world record price for a piece of Titanic memorabilia.

Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge did not confirm the total amount raised at the sale but said it was "a substantial six-figure sum".

The portrait belonged to passenger Helen Churchill Candee, who was travelling to the US to see her son.
