The childhood home of the late Beatles guitarist George Harrison is to be put up for auction later this month.

The property, at 25 Upton Green in the Speke area of Liverpool, is expected to fetch more than £100,000.

It will be auctioned on October 20 at a sale at Liverpool's famous Cavern Club, where the Beatles began their musical career.

Harrison, who died in 2001 after being diagnosed with cancer, lived in the three-bedroom home at Upton Green for a decade from 1949 with his parents Harold and Louise.

The guitarist was around five when he moved to the house. By the time his family moved on 10 years later, he had joined the line-up of The Quarrymen - the group that later became The Beatles.
