A lightsaber used by Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies has sold for more than £130,000 at auction.

The prop, which was sold by Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz, was snapped up by a fan at an auction of Hollywood props and memorabilia in Los Angeles.

Actor Mark Hamill used the lightsaber, which is made from an old photography flashgun, in both Star Wars: A New Hope and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

An original section of the Death Star fetched £13,300, while C-3PO's helmet and robotic hands went for £66,444 and £20,000 respectively.
