The search is on for real-life Sergeant Peppers - to mark the 40th anniversary of the Beatles album of the same name.

Bosses at the Beatles Story museum in Liverpool want to gather as many of the album's namesakes together for the annual Beatles festival in August.

Museum managing director Jerry Goldman said: "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is probably the Beatles' most famous album.

"It's only right we celebrate the huge impact it made on the world of music."

As part of the anniversary celebrations, the museum is also displaying two items featured on artist Peter Blake's famous album cover.

A Cash Box Trophy and the medals worn by John Lennon, which he borrowed from Mona Best mother of original Beatles drummer Pete Best, will be exhibited at the museum for the next four months.

Any Sgt Peppers interested in attending the Beatles festival, which is held in Liverpool, should contact the museum.
