Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Pink Floyd's unruly inflatable pig Algie is one of a number of rock-related props going up for auction next month. Algie the pig was flown above London's Battersea Power Station during a photo shoot for Floyd album Animals in 1977.

It broke free in high winds and led to flights being cancelled at the city's Heathrow airport. It was later found in a field in Kent, and eventually returned to creator Rob Harries.
