LATEST: Former BEATLE Sir Paul McCartney has desperately offered to demolish one of his houses in a bid to save the beloved log cabin on his East Sussex, England estate. The singer, 64, built the secluded hideaway in 2002 and has been trying to secure retrospective planning permission from Rother District Council this year (06). And now, to secure the survival of the building, MCCartney has offered to bulldoze his own house and two barns instead, which have also been accused of having a "negative visual impact". The three-bedroom detached house on the site "will more than compensate" for being allowed to keep the cabin, he argues. The council agreed earlier this month (17AUG06) to grant MCCartney a temporary reprieve, and have given him until November (06) to submit a revised planning application.
