But the estranged couple keep their distance

Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills have been enjoying a vacation at the same place in the US – but haven’t been hanging out together.

The estranged couple, accompanied by 3-year-old daughter Bea, were both snapped in the Hamptons beach resort near New York last week.

But Macca, 65, chose to stay at his mansion while Heather, 39, found accommodation nearby.

Sir Paul enjoyed a lone sailing trip in a dinghy named after late first wife Linda and went dancing with old friend and ex-model Christie Brinkley.

Heather chose to play pool with a male friend in a local bar.

How civilised.
