A rare first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, with annotations and drawings by author JK Rowling, has sold for a record price.

After a bidding war between two buyers the book sold for 150 thousand pounds, a new record for a printed book by Rowling.

The sale raised a total of 439 thousand 200 for English PEN, which campaigns for freedom of expression.
