The childhood home of former Beatle George Harrison has sold at an auction at the Cavern Club for £156,000.

Harrison was six years old in 1949 when he moved into 25 Upton Green in Speke, Liverpool, with his parents.

The three-bedroom mid-terrace home was where The Quarrymen held some of their first rehearsals before the band evolved into the Beatles in 1960.

The fully-renovated property was sold to a Beatles fan from London for £56,000 more than the guide price.
