McCartney visits Lennon's college

Sir Paul McCartney has stepped back in time to visit his former Beatles bandmate John Lennon's old art college after it was recently bought by the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (Lipa).

The Liverpool College of Art building is steeped in Beatles history - it was where Lennon, his future wife Cynthia and The Beatles' original bassist Stuart Sutcliffe all studied in the 1950s.

The purchase by Lipa brings together two old haunts of former Beatles - the main Lipa building is housed in Sir Paul and George Harrison's ex-grammar school, The Liverpool Institute for Boys.

Sir Paul and former Lipa student Liz White, who recently starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe in the film The Woman In Black, were shown around the newly-acquired building by Lipa chief executive and co-founder Mark Featherstone-Witty.

Sir Paul said: "As well as reuniting two landmark Liverpool buildings, I'm glad that this also brings back together George, John and myself.

"Aside from being a building we brought back from the brink, Lipa is now contributing as Mark and I dreamed all those years ago."

Sir Paul and Mr Featherstone-Witty co-founded Lipa, which opened in 1995 to train performers and others in the showbusiness industry.
