£1.1m for Jackson's Thriller jacket

A famed black-and-red calfskin jacket that Michael Jackson wore in the classic Thriller video has been sold at auction for 1.8 million dollars (£1.1m).

Darren Julien, president and chief executive of Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills, said the jacket was bought by Milton Verret, a commodities trader from Austin, Texas.

The jacket is one of two Jackson wore during the filming of the 1983 Thriller video. The singer wears the jacket in a scene with a troupe of zombies who rise from their graves and break into a dance routine.

Mr Verret said the jacket would be sent on tour and used as a fund-raising tool for children's charities.

A portion of the sale price will go to the Shambala Preserve, a big cat sanctuary caring for two tigers Jackson once owned.

Jackson, 50, died on June 25 2009 as he prepared for a series of comeback concerts in London.
