The electric guitar played by Bob Dylan at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival has been sold at auction in New York for a record $965,500 (£591,000).

A New Jersey family had been in possession of the Fender Stratocaster for 48 years after he left it on a plane.

The pilot's daughter had it authenticated on a television programme on the US broadcaster PBS.

The festival in Newport, Rhode Island, is often cited as the performance where Dylan "went electric".
