A photographer was tonight found guilty of assaulting Heather Mills-McCartney in a subway as he tried to take her picture.

Jay Kaycappa, 32, grabbed the estranged wife of ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney by her right shoulder in order to swing her round and take her photograph.

Brighton Magistrates Court heard during a three-day trial that the incident took place in a subway in the seaside resort on July 5 last year.

Father of three Kaycappa, of The Hurdles, Fareham, Hampshire, was also convicted of assaulting Ms Mills-McCartney's friend Mark Payne the following evening.

The freelance photographer shook his head in the dock after magistrates convicted him of both assault charges.

Ms Mills-McCartney was not in court to hear the verdicts.
