Heather's police run-in
13:30 08 August 2006
Lady Heather Mills McCartney was left humiliated after police were called as she tried to gain entry to her former home.
Heather arrived with daughter Beatrice for a scheduled visit to the mansion she used to share with estranged husband Sir Paul McCartney.
Sir Paul was not at home and because the locks had been changed and the gate was locked Heather's security guard climbed over the wall to let her in.
But Sir Paul's security had not been informed of the visit and when they saw the man scaling the wall called the police.
Four officers arrived on the scene within minutes and after several frenzied phone calls from Heather the matter was resolved.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "She was horrified to find the gate lock changed. It was a huge mix-up. But it was all sorted out amicably."
A police spokesperson said: "We were called after a guard reported intruders. No arrests were made."
Heather spent the night at the house and will leave Beatrice behind for a pre-arranged visit with her father.
