Sir Paul McCartney has received an apology from a British newspaper which falsely claimed his wife had suffered a miscarriage.

The former beatle and Heather Mills-McCARTNEY were described as grief-stricken and struggling to cope with the loss of an unborn baby in an article published in The People on 26 June (05).

The publication has agreed to donate a substantial amount of money to a charity of the McCartneys' choice and to pay their legal costs.
