Two concerts will take place in Liverpool later to mark the 10th anniversary of George Harrison's death.

The lead guitarist of The Beatles, who also had a notable solo career, died aged 58 from cancer.

The concerts will take place at 14:00 GMT at St George's Hall, and at 20:00 GMT at The Cavern Club where the Fab Four often played.

Flags will also fly at half-mast at both the Liverpool City Hall and St George's Hall.

Performers at the concerts will include two acts that Harrison signed to The Beatles' Apple label - Brute Force and The Radha Krishna Temple.

Other guest performers will include Jeff Slate, The Mersey Beatles, Singh Strings, The Liverpool Ukulele Orchestra, The Rebels, Tsema and Andre Barreau from The Bootleg Beatles.

Fans are also being invited to call in at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral for a special ceremony and asked to bring a "paper flower or dove or another symbol of peace or love with perhaps the words of a prayer or lines from one of George's many tunes."
