An iconic Abbey Road street sign has sold to a Beatles fan for £37,200 at auction.<br />
<br />
The distinctive NW8 sign for the road named after the Fab Four's 1969 album, was one of 275 street signs sold on behalf of Westminster City Council. <br />
<br />
It had been expected to fetch up to £2,000 but ended up selling for 37 times that amount due to its association of the Beatles' album cover of John, Paul George and Ringo walking over the zebra crossing on Abbey Road.
