A costume worn by actor Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek is expected to fetch up to £70,000 when it goes up for auction in September.

Nimoy wore the blue uniform while playing Mr Spock in the second season of the sci-fi series in 1967 and 68.

The costume is being put up for sale by an unnamed British fan, just months after Nimoy died at the age of 83.

It will be included in an auction of television and film memorabilia in London in September.
