The sister of Beatles legend George Harrison has been left devastated after thieves broke into her car and stole photographs and lyrics belonging to the late guitarist.

LOU HARRISON was in the middle of donating memorabilia to the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, when her car window was smashed and a briefcase containing pictures of her with her brother and lyrics to his songs was removed.

She made an emotional appeal to local television station KHTV, pleading with thieves to return the items, which were "precious to me obviously because I don't have my brother in person any more".

George Harrison died in November 2001 after losing his fight against cancer. He was 58.
