A black knitted tie that belonged to John Lennon has sold for more than 3,000 pounds at an auction in Liverpool.

Lennon gave the tie to Joyce McWilliams in 1962 when she was 15 and used to attend the lunchtime sessions at the famous Cavern Club.

He also gave her a handkerchief, which he had used to mop his forehead in the hot club.

Rare photographs of The Beatles were also sold at the auction at the Beatles Shop in Mathew Street.
