A collection of letters from Lawrence of Arabia has been discovered after they were thought to have been burned on a fire.

The letters came from the collection of the late Sir Michael Newton, but were lost and it was assumed they had been burned on a fire along with his unwanted papers.

However, when an auctioneer sorted through some books belonging to Sir Michael, an envelope fell out of one that contained the missing missives.
