No bids made for former PoW camp (UK)





A former Prisoner of War camp in County Durham which was advertised for sale online failed to attract any bids.

Tourist attraction Harperley camp, near Crook, was put on auction site eBay for £900,000 by its current owners who can no longer afford its restoration.

James and Lisa McLeod now hope a public body, charity or heritage organisation will step in to save the camp.

The camp housed German and Italian prisoners in World War II and won ancient monument status in 2002.
