Maccas come face-to-face in court battle

Paul McCartney and Heather Mills faced each other in court yesterday for the first round of their bitter divorce battle.

The hearing, at London’s High Court, was for a judge to decide which of Heather’s allegations against the former Beatle would be allowed to be used.

Since their split in May 2006, Heather, 39, has claimed her estranged husband, 64, was physically and verbally abusive to her.

But Paul has always denied the allegations.

The pair did not speak throughout the hearing and were not required to give evidence.
