Aberystwyth available on eBay
Aberystwyth has been put up for sale on eBay.
The prank auction invites bids for a seaside town that's "in a good
condition", but "can smell slightly."
The seller adds it is a place where "locals are occasionally a problem".
The town, which has a population of just over 11,000, has so far attracted a
highest bid of £22.
A spokeswoman for eBay <http://www.ebay.co.uk/> said she had not yet seen
the auction herself but attributed to a disgruntled visitor.
The Aberystwyth item was later taken down from the website.
