THE Angel of the North has gone under the hammer for £3.4million.

But the bidders weren’t fighting for the iconic North East statue, instead they were after a miniature version, which was one of five models made by artist Anthony Gormley.

The cast-iron maquette, which is two metres tall and five metres wide, was among 53 lots at Christie’s International auction in London.

The estimated sale price for the statue was for £1.5million to £2million.
