Following the UK's '5p carrier bag' charge which was enforced at the beginning of the month, a number of eBay sellers have begun listing plastic carrier bags online as 'vintage collectors items'-with some charging up to £1,000.

One seller has listed a plastic Asda carrier bag as a 'collectors item' with a starting bid of 99p while another has listed 5 carrier bags for the buy it now price of £1,000.

Some of the sellers have included a list of handy suggestions for what to do with the bags including using them to protect your bike seat and to 'collect rubbish in your small bins at home.'
