An auction house is expecting a lock of David Bowie's hair to fetch more than 4,000 US dollars (£2,720) this weekend.

Heritage Auctions said Bowie's hair will go on the block on Saturday as part of an auction in Beverly Hills, California.

Heritage said the lock comes from a former employee at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London.

She snipped some of Bowie's hair in the 1980s to create a wig for a wax figure of the singer. Heritage said she kept it as a souvenir.

The rock superstar died in January at 69 after a battle with liver cancer.
