Six-page rant goes to a private collector...

A letter written by JOHN LENNON to PAUL McCARTNEY after THE BEATLES‘ break-up has sold for £60,000 to a private collector.

The letter failed to reach its reserve price of £65,000 at auction last week in London. Bids stalled at £52,000.

The six-page letter is understood to be a colourful rant from Lennon, including criticisms of McCartney‘s marriage to Linda.
