One of the five golden tickets used in the film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory has sold for just over £16,000.<br />
<br />
The shiny slip of foil paper was the one English brat Veruca Salt 'found' after her wealthy father got his factory work-force to open thousands of Wonka chocolate bars.<br />
<br />
After filming had finished actress Julie Dawn Cole, who played selfish Veruca in the 1971 movie, kept hold of the 5ins by 7ins golden ticket.<br />
 <br />
Julie later gifted it and a fake Wonka chocolate bar to her friend Lindy Sellers.
