Heather Mills astonished witnesses by playing a tape which purports to record Sir Paul McCartney allegedly admitting that he hit his first wife Linda, it was claimed today.
Sir Paul's estranged wife played the tape in an off-camera moment during her emotional tour of TV and radio stations yesterday, according to a newspaper report.
A witness who heard the tape said: "It was quite extraordinary. There were raised voices. Heather and Paul were shouting. Paul can be heard confessing he hit Linda 'once or twice'.
