The handwritten lyrics to Bob Dylan song Like a Rolling Stone have been sold at auction for over $2 million (£1.25 million).

The folk-rocker's scrawl has broken sales records for popular music lyrics snapped up at auction.

The previous record was set in 2010 when John Lennon's handwritten lyrics for A Day in the Life sold for $1.2 million (£750,000).

The manuscript for Dylan's A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall also sold at the Sotheby's sale - that went under the hammer for $485,000 (£303,000).
