A lock of John Lennon's hair fetched 24,000 pounds ($48,000) on Wednesday as part of an auction of Beatles memorabilia collected by the band's hairdresser.

The hair _ inside an autographed copy of Lennon's book "A Spaniard in the Works" _ sold to an unnamed telephone bidder.

Gorringes, the auction house, had estimated that the hair would sell for 2,000 to 3,000 pounds ($4,000 to $6,000).
