We enjoyed last week's Towergate-sponsored Help the Hospices photography auction, even when the bidding eased past Backchat's meagre monthly salary.

Biggest seller on the night was Barry Lategan's iconic photograph of Twiggy, which went under the hammer for a cool £5,400. And the successful bidder? Step forward Towergate's very own Andy Homer... evidently small change for the M&A supremo.
