271 Picasso paintings discovered

A French electrician faces a huge legal battle after revealing a stash of 271 previously unknown works by Pablo Picasso.  He claims the works were all given to him as gifts from the artist over a period of three years, while he was installing burglar alarm systems in the artist's various homes: a story disputed by the Picasso Estate.

The paintings are valued at an initial estimate of over £50m.
