Ringo Starr's childhood home sells for just £70,000

Ringo Starr's childhood home in Liverpool has sold for £70,000.

The Beatles legend lived at the property in The Admire Grove area of the city in northern England for 20 years with his mum Elsie Starkey and he left home in 1963 to live with his wife Barbara Bach.

Fab Four super-fan Jackie Holmes - who already owns several properties belonging to Beatles band members - won the white and pink two-bedroom terraced house at an auction at Liverpool's famous Cavern Club.

Jackie plans on buying every home previously owned by the 'Yellow Submarine' hitmakers.

She told Liverpool's Echo newspaper: "I've bought a Beatles house every year since 2014. It's not that I want to buy each Beatle's former homes, the houses I have bought have special Beatles history."

She plans on renting the small home out to people who will "appreciate the heritage" of the music icons.

She said: "Ringo's former house will be done up to a decent standard and I am looking for a tenant who will look after the house and appreciate its heritage."

Jackie also owns the late John Lennon's mother Cynthia's former house and George Harrison's old home in Speke.

In comparison, the highest-grossing member of The Beatles, Sir Paul McCartney's childhood home in the same city sold for £150,000 last year.
