Paintings by a father and son fetched more than £35,000 after going up for auction.

Eighteen pieces of work, by Braintree-born Edward Bawden and his son Richard Bawden, were auctioned by regional auctioneer, Sworders.

Many of the paintings, which were auctioned at Sworders Decorative Art and Design Sale on January 28, sold for much more than expected.
