Beatles and Gandhi under hammer at Derby auction

A handwritten Beatles set list and Gandhi's signature are going under the hammer at a Derby auction house.

The set list written by John Lennon in 1964 for a World Tour concert is expected to fetch up to £10,000.

Gandhi gave his signature to a woman from Radcliffe-on-Trent when she was employed as his driver to take him to address MPs in the House of Commons.

Bidding is expected to reach £2,000 at auctioneers Bamfords, on Chequers Road later.

Sheila Anderson picked up Gandhi and assistant Madeleine Slade in 1931 and asked for his signature, which he gave her on House of Commons notepaper.

John Lennon's list includes the song titles - Saw Her Stand, Beethoven, All My Loving, She Loves You, From Me To You, Boys, This Boy, Money and Twist.
