Beatles jacket and autographs on auction

A rare jacket that once belonged to Beatles star John Lennon is due to go on auction in Derbyshire.

The teal blue jacket was once the property of Jo Jo Johns, personal assistant to the Beatles, who worked at the group's offices from 1968 to 1975 and cleared Lennon's house when he moved to America.

In the early 1970s she gave the jacket to her friend, Anthony Goddard, in Leicestershire.

The Nehru-style jacket was on display at Mr Goddard's home for more than 25 years, but is now going under the hammer.
