It was a case of fortune rather than fake on Sunday evening as a painting bought at a Diss auction house seven years ago was proved to be genuine on a BBC television program - and now worth in excess of £300,000.

Purchased at TW Gaze in Roydon Road in 2007, it was proved the picture, depicting a Parisian café scene, was a genuine piece by Eduoard Vuillard, a French post-impressionist painter.

Keith Tutt, of Hardingham, Norfolk, bought the piece at auction from a Suffolk family for £11,000.
