Thanks-thanks to TalkTalk teen hacker: UK cops' first auction of ill-gotten Bitcoin nets £240k

May have sold sold for average price of 6,798.80 GBP but the Police are not going to see that much as they have fees to pay ( can not see from Wilsons Auctions how much their fee is) so they could well end up than less than the current price.

Also the buyer will have fees to play so the "loss" is likely to be more at which point buying the coins at auction make little sense to me.
