Lennon's fingerprints taken by FBI

A set of John Lennon's fingerprints have been seized by the FBI

The FBI has seized an official police set of John Lennon's fingerprints from a Manhattan memorabilia shop.

Agents removed the item from the US store, called Gotta Have It!

The signed fingerprint card was made at a police station on May 8, 1976. It bears the name John Winston Ono Lennon. At the time, Lennon was applying for citizenship.

A spokesman said the FBI was investigating how the item "came to be up for auction".

Store owner Peter Siege, said Homeland Security had also inquired about the card.

He said an unidentified concert promoter bought it at a Beatles convention about two decades ago.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
