Festive Sir Paul McCartney has thanked his road crew by throwing a Christmas party for them - and covering the ground with snow.

The former beatle and his wife Heather Mills held the seasonal bash in a school playground near their home in East Sussex, England.

McCartney arranged for snow machines to provide a white Christmas for all his employees who worked on his summer (04) tour.

A source says, "Everyone had a great, great time. The ground was a couple of inches thick with snow."
