Rosie Reid, the Bristol University student who tried to auction her viriginity online, is facing a police investigation after having sex with the highest bidder.

Avon and Somerset police are investigating if Reid is guilty of soliciting. A London man paid £8,400 by banker's draft to sleep with the lesbian student.

Reid, who had never had sex with a man, originally tried to sell her virginity on eBay before moving the offer to her own site. She wanted the money to help pay her tuition costs.

18-year old Reid believes her actions will spark a debate on student finance.

She told the News of the World the experience was "very uncomfortable but over quite quickly".

The man involved is a 44-year old divorced father of two. He is a BT engineer and lives in south east London, according to reports. ®
