Sir Paul McCartney’s London mansion has been targeted by thieves.


Police are investigating after the former Beatle’s house, in St John’s Wood, north-west London, was broken into.

Scotland Yard confirmed they were called to a property on December 7 and found signs of forced entry.

No arrests have been made and the investigation continues, they added.

It is unknown if the musician, 76, or his wife Nancy Shevell were home at the time of the break-in.

The incident came just days before Sir Paul played a gig in his hometown of Liverpool on Wednesday.

The veteran star performed 38 songs as part of the UK leg of his Freshen Up tour.

Sir Paul is due to play at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday, December 16.

This is not the first time a former Beatle has been targeted by burglars.

George Harrison was knifed in the chest by an intruder at his Oxfordshire home in December 1999.
