Abbey Road street sign, who wants it?

The Abbey Road street sign, the most famous sign in the world (excluding the Hollywood sign and other more famous signs), is to be auctioned off on eBay.

The sign, which was removed in 2007 was situated outside the Abbey Road studios, near to the zebra crossing The Beatles famously meandered over on the cover of their album Abbey Road. But over the years it’s been graffiti'd by Sharpie-loving Beatles fans, so much so that's it is nearly ineligible.

Westminster Council are to replace the iconic landmark with a new enamelled steel sign, designed to be graffit-proof (HA! Good luck).

Whatever it goes for no doubt it would have been cheaper to by a house on the same road.....
