George Harrison's Beatles memorabilia to go under the hammer

The family of the late George Harrison have revealed plans to auction off some of his personal Beatles memorabila.

The sale is due to take place on December 12 at Bonhams in London and will include around 100 lots from the likes of photographs to clothing, jewellery and guitars.

Stephanie Connell, a representative for auctioneers Bonhams, explained that one of the most coveted items going to auction is Harrison's black leather jacket that has become an "iconic part of Beatles history":

"This leather jacket is instantly recognisable and was an important part of the Beatles image in their early years. George Harrison was one of the pioneers of this signature style... It is extremely exciting to see such an iconic part of Beatles history emerge onto the market."

In addition to his personal items, a collection of 1,000 Beatles photographs is also for sale and is expected to make around $80,000 (£50,000).
