The BFG civilian worker started collecting Magical Mystery Tour memorabilia after meeting the Fab Four at age seven while they were shooting scenes for their psychedelic 1967 TV film at an airbase in Kent.
He has turned a room in his home in Hessisch Oldendorf, near Hameln, into a museum dedicated to the film and its album – a collection valued at more than €100,000.
And now the 53-year-old has just purchased his largest showpiece – one of the two original Magical Mystery Tour buses, which he spotted for sale on the Internet.

During a busy first day she toured the Joint Aviation Group, met aircrews and stepped aboard Apache, Lynx and Chinook helicopters.
NEW powers have been introduced to test Service personnel for alcohol or drugs.
As from November, a commanding officer who has reasonable cause to believe that a person under their command is unfit to undertake safety-critical duties can order them to be tested.
