    It is just a mistake in the pricing, I think the way the pricing system works is that if there isn't a price amended it defaults to some stupid value like say £12345.67 or it defaults to the old price before it was moved to Clearance section, this prevents anyone trying to take advantage of mistakenly low prices as was the case for Kodak(I think it was) a while ago.
