A Beatles sleeve featuring the faces of music executives in place of the Fab Four has been declared the world's most valuable record cover.

The adapted artwork for their Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album is valued at around £70,000, according to a new study by Record Collector magazine.

It is one of five Beatles albums in the top 10 of releases which are prized primarily for the collectability of their sleeves.

It also includes the famous banned "butcher" sleeve which was briefly issued in the US, and some of the numbered copies of their 1968 self-titled release, often known as the "white album".
