Rare Audrey Hepburn stamps sold at Berlin auction

A rare sheet of 10 stamps showing film star Audrey Hepburn smoking has fetched 430,000 euros (£380,000) at a charity auction in Berlin.

The German Postal Service printed 14 million of the stamps in 2001 depicting the actress as Holly Golightly in the film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

But her son refused to grant copyright, saying the image had been altered, and all but a few sheets were destroyed.
