Man buys limited edition IKEA pencil for £250,000

The world’s most valuable pencil was sold yesterday, reports say.

Lord Notquitethere is known for collecting factory error products, some other items in his collection include a computer keyboard which is missing an ‘M’ key as well as a special collectors TV which has no remote control.
