Macca song for Linda food ad

Paul McCartney has recorded a song to accompany a new TV advert for his late wife Linda's vegetarian food range.

The commercial, to be screened later this month, will also feature an animated version of Linda, who died in 1998.

It is thought to be the first time Paul has specifically recorded a tune for an ad, although his songs were made available for licensing to commercials several years ago.

The frozen food firm which Linda launched has not advertised on television for 15 years.



Wagner silent on Wood death

Actor Robert Wagner has declined to be interviewed by detectives in a renewed inquiry into the drowning death of his wife Natalie Wood three decades ago.

Wagner was interviewed by authorities soon after Wood's drowning in 1981, but the actor is the only person who was on the yacht the night Wood died who has not spoken to detectives as part of the latest inquiry, despite repeated requests and attempts, sheriff's Lieutenant John Corina said.
