Sheep sells at auction for world record £367,500 fee

Double Diamond, a Texel, smashed the world record for an auctioned sheep when he sold for 350,000 guineas (£367,500) in Lanark, near Glasgow. Texels are a highly sought after rare breed that originated on the small island of Texel, off the coast of the Netherlands. Until the sale, the previous record for a sheep sold at auction stood at just over £230,000, set in 2009.
