£2.95 charity shop painting to sell for £3,000 at auction

Jan Buglass, 53, could make 1,000 per cent profit after the portrait, showing a pretty girl in a straw hat, was identified as the work of Royal Academician William Powell Frith.

The mother-of-four bought the picture at the PDSA shop at Portishead, near Bristol, 15 years ago, because she thought it suited her Victorian house's decor.
