A series of black and white photos of The Beatles have been brought to life in colour ahead of what would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday.

The enchanting images show the Fab Four when they were in fact a fivesome, performing at clubs in Hamburg and Taunton’s Wyvern Social Club.

They feature drummer Pete Best, who would later be replaced by Ringo Starr, as well as original bass guitarist Stuart Sutcliffe, who left the band to pursue his career as a painter, before his untimely death in 1962.
