Sir Paul McCartney's estranged wife Heather Mills has been in talks with local police today (14FEB07), reportedly over safety fears. The animal rights campaigner has raised concerns in the past after receiving death threats following news of her split from the former beatle last year (06). In December (06), Mills' spokesperson revealed violent criminals in MCCartney's native Liverpool, England were planning to punish her for claiming in legal papers the singer physically abused her. And today Mills met with officers in Hove, south England, to talk about her concerns. A spokeswoman for Sussex police says, "It was a pre-planned meeting. (It) did not relate to anything specific and she was not arrested." MCCartney and Mills split up in May (06) after four years of marriage and began divorce proceedings in July (06).
