A handwritten Valentine's card, believed to be the world's oldest, is set to be auctioned on Valentine's Day.

Charles Hanson, of Hansons Auctioneers in Etwall, Derbyshire, said he was assessing a collection of Victorian and Georgian cards when he came across it.

Describing the card as "something very special", Mr Hanson said it dates to about 1790, a time when romantic novelist Jane Austen lived.
