London: Debris, said to be from a horrendous crash involving 97-year-old Prince Philip, has been put up for sale on eBay with all the money promised for cancer research, a media report said Monday. Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth, was unhurt in the crash on Thursday on the busy A149, in which his Land Rover Freelander landed on its side after a collision with a Kia car.

Seller morbius777 claimed the parts were from the collision near King’s Lynn, Norfolk, on Thursday. The listing said the items “may even have Phil’s DNA on it, if you wanted to clone him or anything”. It said all money raised from the online auction would go to Cancer Research UK, with the current price sitting at 65,900 pounds with 139 bids, the BBC reported.
The eBay post said the listing was for three plastic parts, not glass.

The seller said: “These items are not stolen, they have been left at the roadside for way too long. “It amazes me that they weren’t cleaned up on the day. So, as opportunists do, I tidied them up. “There’s no financial gain in this for me, all proceeds going to charity. It’s a bit of fun, and Cancer Research get to benefit.”
