A strand of hair from Elvis Presley, saved by his personal barber, has raised £1,055 at auction. Homer Gill Gilleland toured with Elvis for more than 20 years. He dyed the singer's hair black and then cut it, saving strands in a towel. Friends of Mr Gilleland said he would then bundle up the towel, with hair inside, and take it home in a bag. The piece of hair had been expected to fetch up to £250 at Saturday's auction in Devizes, Wiltshire. It was auctioned at Henry Aldridge and Son in Devizes.
