Beatles pictures found in family album after 50 years - now up for auction

Twenty unpublished black and white pictures of the Beatles are to go for auction after being found lying around in a family album for nearly 50 years.

They were taken behind the scenes during the filming of 'A hard Day's Night' in 1964.

Taking pictures on the set was banned to stop leaks of new material, but the props manager at Pinewood Studios, Peter Allchorne, was able to walk around with a Kodak Retinette camera.

He thought they were just another band larking about on set and didn't even like their music.

The photos go on sale in Stockport, Cheshire, on May 19.
