Ringo Starr - Beatles Help! Clothing Sells At Auction In Liverpool

Clothing worn by Ringo Starr and George Harrison in the Beatles film Help! have sold at auction in Liverpool, England.

The cape Starr wore in the 1965 Richard Lester film fetched $97,600 (£61,000), while Harrison's jacket sold for $86,400 (£54,000) at the Omega Auctions sale on Thursday (20Mar14).

Both items were expected to go for between $32,000 (£20,000) and $48,000 (30,000).

Meanwhile, a piano used by Sir Paul MCCartney and John Lennon while they were composing Yesterday and Help! was bought by a South American collector for $92,000 (£57,500).

A cape, suit and sheet of handwritten lyrics, which once belonged to MCCartney, were withdrawn from the auction following a last-minute legal challenge from the rocker.

Auctioneer Paul Fairweather tells the Bbc, "Unfortunately the lawyers have claimed that Paul would never have given any clothing away."
