Sir Paul McCartney has blasted fast food chain McDonald's for using his photograph in its Liverpool restaurant.

The 66-year-old, a vegetarian, has reacted angrily to McDonald's use of his image to sell hamburgers, labelling them "morons".

His spokesman Geoff Baker said: "What sort of morons do McDonald's think Beatles fans are? It's ridiculous and insulting to use images to peddle hamburgers. Fans should boycott McDonald's - and not just in Liverpool."

A spokeswoman for McDonald's stated that the pictures were to "acknowledge the outstanding contribution the Beatles made to both local and global culture".
