Paul McCartney fights to save post office

Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney is backing a campaign against post office closures in the United Kingdom...especially when it is near one of his homes.

According to the UK Press Association and other European media outlets, McCartney wrote a letter which was read by his brother, Mike, outside the Merseyside, England post office which is in danger of being closed.

The statement said: "This village post office is a vital part of local community life and as such should be saved for future generations to cherish.

"Its 100-year history should not be cast aside lightly. I agree with thousands of local people who feel that everything must be done to save it. Please help!"

Mike McCartney, 63, said he and Sir Paul, 65, have been using the post office since 1964

According to his brother, "Like everyone else he pops in for milk and to post letters. He wanted to do what he could."
