The £50,000 Roman sarcophagus found abandoned under the bushes in a Dorset back garden

A rare and beautifully carved Roman sarcophagus found overgrown by plants in a back garden is set to sell for more than £50,000.

An eagle-eyed antiques expert spotted a corner of what looked like a trough when he visited a property to look at some art indoors.

However, the expert spotted something in the garden - and fought through the undergrowth to reveal a 1,900-year-old marble sarcophagus.
