Beatles film makes £1,200

An Ilminster man who unearthed long-lost cinefilm of the Beatles last year has pocketed nearly £1,000 after an auction at Christies.

In November, the News revealed how amateur photographer David Poole, 67, had filmed the Fab Four as they arrived at Heathrow Airport.

Forty years later, he re-discovered the film, which was somewhat faded, and decided to sell it at Christies.

This week he received a cheque for £943.85, following an auction in February.

He said: "Christies thought that because of its condition it would fetch between £300 and £500 but it sold for £1,200."

Mr Poole said he would splash the cash on a new carpet.
