The Beatles won a Grammy for A Hard Day's Night
Two Grammy Award trophies won by the Beatles and singer Sir Paul McCartney are to be auctioned in California.

The Beatles picked up the award for A Hard Day's Night, while Sir Paul's was for the Wings' track Band on the Run.

The Fab Four's award is estimated to fetch up to $60,000 (32,760), and Sir Paul's about half that sum.

They form part of a memorabilia sale taking place in Monterey on Saturday, which also includes the Golden Globe won for the 1959 film Ben Hur.

The Golden Globe has been given an estimate of $9,000 (4,910)

A pair of sunglasses worn by John Lennon will also go under the hammer.

A shirt worn by Tom Cruise in the military thriller A Few Good Men will be available for sale at the auction, along with a costume worn by Mike Myers in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.

A pair of boxing gloves donned by Sylvester Stallone in Rocky are expected to fetch up to $3,000 (1,636).
