'Rare' hut sold on southern edge of British Isles
One of a few "rare" buildings at the southern-most point of the British Isles has been sold.
The hut, built on Les Minquiers - a group of rocks about nine miles (14.4 km) south of Jersey - was sold for "a six-figure sum".
Fewer than 20 huts have been built on the reef, which France sought to claim in the 1950s.
Advocate James Lawrence, who travelled by sea for a site visit, said only five had been sold in the past 50 years.
