A Derbyshire woman has paid £7,000 for a jacket once worn by Beatles star John Lennon.

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.

The winning bidder said it was a birthday present for her husband. The jacket was expected to fetch between £8,000-£12,000.
