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.
