Over 250 items of Julian Glover memorabilia is to go up for auction in Bristol on 24 July.

The actor, who is most renowned for roles in the likes of James Bond, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Game of Thrones, in a career spanning more than 60 years, said now was the time to "gently let them go" and hopes others "get as much pleasure out of them" as he did.

The prized possessions, which include the actor's "badge of rank" worn in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, as well as the overcoat he wore as the villainous Walter Donavon in Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade, will go under the hammer at East Bristol Auctions Ltd later this month.

In a video on the auction house's Facebook page, Mr Glover added he just wanted to "share what he has over all these years" and urged people to keep bidding.

Mr Glover added that lockdown had given him time to reflect, adding that it made him realised he'd been "terribly lucky" to feature in a number of "iconic films" and he'd collected a number of items over the course of his glittering career.
