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.
