The only-known poem written by late British politician Sir Winston Churchill in his adult age goes under hammer at Bonham's auction house in London.

The poem was discovered by Roy Davids, a retired manuscript dealer from Great Haseley in Oxfordshire, who said that it "is by far the most exciting Churchill discovery I have seen". 

Churchill's poem, written in blue crayon on two sheets of 4th Hussars-headed notepaper, is expected to fetch between £12,000 to £15,000.
