A lock of hair belonging to the late Beatle, John Lennon has been bought by a collector in Bristol for almost £25,000
Paul Fraser Collectibles acquired the clipping at Heritage Auctions in the States, with the hammer falling at $35,000 - around three times the estimate.
The lock was saved from a haircut in Hamburg in 1966 ready for the Beatle's performance in the comedy "How I Won the War". The trimmings were reportedly burnt to stop it being sold on but some were clearly kept.
Lennon wore a pair of round-framed glasses for the role, which he continued to wear for the rest of his life.
It is a new world record for a lock of Lennon's hair. The previous record for a lock was £24,000 ($33,989), set at Gorringes in 2007.
