A rare copy of a Beatles LP signed by all four band members has finally been sold for £12,000 at an auction in Sussex.


Chris Collins from Eastbourne and his sister Liz Chambers from Worthing initially turned down a £12,000 bid for a copy of the album, ‘Please Please Me’.

They had hoped to get £15,000 for the LP, which was given to their late father during a drinking session.

But the siblings have now accepted £12,000 from private buyers. The album was signed by four band members after they used it as a coaster during a card game in 1963.
