A movie poster signed by Tom Cruise is among star-studded items being auctioned in an online internet appeal to raise funds for victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami.

British newspaper The Sun has teamed up with website EBAY.CO.UK to help survivors of the disaster.

Alongside Cruise's signed COLLATERAL poster, Velvet Revolver rocker Slash has signed his trademark LES GIBSON STANDARD guitar and donated it to the fund-raising appeal.

At the time of writing, bidding had reached $495 (GBP260) on the Collateral poster, while Slash's guitar currently stands at $8,550 (GBP4,500).

Five items will be auctioned per day. Future auctions are set to include paintings by ROLLING STONE RONNIE WOOD.
