Clothing and handwritten lyrics belonging to Sir Paul McCartney have been withdrawn from a sale at Omega Auctions in Liverpool following a legal challenge by the Beatle.

The lots were due to be auctioned today.

These coats, worn by George Harrison and Ringo Star in Help! (1965), will auction later today

They were allegedly given to Rose Martin, his ex housekeeper, in the 1970s by Linda McCartney - although Sir Paul refutes this claim.

The dedicated Beatles auction will still take place, and features a range of memorabilia from across the band's career, including a piano and a pair of jackets from the 1965 film Help!

We have this striking autographed photo of Paul McCartney for sale.
