Beatles Help! jackets to be auctioned

The jackets worn by The Beatles in their 1965 film Help! are expected to fetch up to $115,000 (£69,000) when they are put up for auction next month.

The items of clothing- worn by George Harrison and Ringo Starr - will go under the hammer at Omega Auctions in March.

Taken from director Richard Lester's private collection, staff at the auction house have estimated that they will attract offers of between $82,000 (£49,875) and $115,000 (£69,947) when the bidding opens.

Auctioneer Paul Fairweather said: "As Beatles clothing goes, these have got to be amongst the Holy Grail for any Beatles collector. They feature on one of their most recognizable album covers and I have a feeling these could really fly off the block."
