image for Da Vinci Drawing Found In Peckham Attic
The Da-Vinci drawing of an early helicopter due to go under the hammer today

A hitherto undiscovered technical drawing by Leonardo da Vinci is set to go under that hammer at top auction house, Crufts, later today.

The drawing, believed to be a set of plans for an early version of a helicopter, was discovered in the loft of a house in London's trendy Peckham by the house owner, Wilma Princecombe, she told us:

"I was up in the attic rootling about like you do when I found the drawing. I immediately thought that it looked like plans for a helicopter or sumfink like that. I knew Leonardo da Vinci used to be a lodger here back in the twenties when he wrote that code book thing and I put two and two together, called Crufts and here I am"

Experts expect that the drawing will fetch a cool 6 million and that Wilma will be made for life as a result of her lucky discovery.

So readers, why not see if you can find priceless treasures in your house in our fun competition and call us with what you find. There's a prize on offer for the best.
