A vial said to contain a sample of the late US President Ronald Reagan's blood has been withdrawn from sale by an online auction house.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation had expressed outrage over the auction, in which bidding had reached over $30,000.

Guernsey-based PFC Auctions said in a statement that the vial would now be donated to the Reagan foundation.

The foundation said it was pleased the blood would stay "out of public hands".
