A waxwork version of Sir Paul McCartney's head has been left on a train - and now £2,000 is being offered for its safe return.

The owner of the head, Joby Carter, left it on a London-to-Reading train last Thursday (October 16), reports BBC News.

Carter is offering the money as a reward for the head, which was expected to sell for between £5,000 and £10,000 at Carters Entertainment auctioneers before it went missing.

The head was made in the 1960s and had been on display at the Louis Tussauds museum in Great Yarmouth.

"The silly thing is since the appeal to find the head we've had more bids come in and the sell price is guaranteed to have gone up," Carter said. "But until it is found it is worthless."
