John Lennon's rotten tooth goes under the hammer

A tooth belonging to John Lennon is going up for auction this Saturday in Stockport.

It was given to his former housekeeper as a souvenir for her daughter after he had it removed at the dentist's and it is expected to fetch £10,000.

Karen Fairweather from Omega Auctions described the tooth to Radio 5 live Breakfast.
