A guitar played by Beatle George Harrison in 1963 is expected to fetch more than 100,000 at a London auction.

The instrument goes on sale on 30 November - the fifth anniversary of the musician's death.

John Lennon's hand-painted psychedelic shirt, designed by Mick Jagger's brother Chris, is also for sale with an estimated price of 45,000.

The Cooper Owen Music Legend auction includes nearly 300 pieces of rock and pop memorabilia.

A shirt Lennon gave to a fan in 1963, which he described as his favourite, is expected to fetch about 8,000.

A Sgt Pepper album sleeve signed by all four Beatles has been estimated at 40,000.

Unreleased recordings by the Rolling Stones and a rough version of the very first Mick Jagger and Keith Richards composition will also be included in the collection.
