Loot, the free ads newspaper has today launched a person to person auction service combining Internet and phone bids.
The new service is designed to take the hassle out of buying second hand goods with all the excitement of a live auction and the convenience of the Internet or phone.
The service began as a pilot in the South East earlier this year, and Loot found that over half the bids came via the Internet.
To mark its launch, Loot is holding a week-long celebrity auction to raise money for three children?s hospitals with items donated from Manchester United football team and pop acts Boyzone and All Saints.
