A silk jacket belonging to Mick Jagger (pictured) sold for pounds 200 at a charity auction yesterday.

The auction was the climax of a two-week long scarecrow festival at Groombridge Place Gardens and Enchanted Forest, near Tunbridge Wells, Kent, with proceeds going to Save the Children.

Other items on sale included a dress designed and worn by Vivienne Westwood, a pair of crushed velvet trousers, complete with rip, worn on stage by Wet Wet Wet lead singer Marti Pellow, and a cravat worn by cult singer Mike Flowers Pop.

Jagger's blue silk jacket was bought by a Brighton man who said he was "more of a Beatles fan" but wanted it as an investment for his daughter.
