A cow named after a Spice Girl has sold for a world record price.

Wilodge Poshspice was sold for £262,000 at an auctioneer in Carlisle, doubling the previous record of £131,250 that was paid out for a heifer in 2014.

Breeder Christine Williams said that the sale was "akin to winning the lottery" and described the six-figure sum as "mind-blowing".

She said that the record price recognised the "smart and stylish" animal had a "lot of panache" and the "x-factor".

The nod to the Spice Girls runs in the bovine's family as her mother was named Milbrook Gingerspice.

Williams told BBC News: "Her mother was phenomenal."

She also knew that the cow would be popular as soon she was born.

Williams added: "I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her."
