Film fans have spent millions of dollars at an auction of Steve McQueen memorabilia, with one bidder paying $70,000 (£37,000) for a pair of sunglasses once worn by the actor. His widow Barbara was among those who donated cars, trucks and motorbikes to the sale, at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

McQueen, nicknamed the King of Cool, was one of the biggest box office draws of the 1960s and 1970s and was as famous for his racing as he was for his acting.
