A journal from the HMS Beagle, the ship that scientist Charles Darwin voyaged on, has sold for close to £100,000 at auction.

The ship was the vessel that Darwin used during some of his most important journeys that helped him form his ideas on evolution.

The journal was kept by a commanding officer on the ship, detailing the end of its first hydrographic surveying voyage to Patagonia in South America.
