A Liverpool dad chatted to Sir Paul McCartney about their old school after he spotted his hero at a bus stop.

Colin Newitt, 52, struck up a short conversation with the Beatles legend after his wife spotted him in the Heswall area.

Colin managed to have a brief chat with Sir Paul, 79, on Saturday (September 25) afternoon as he drove his family from Parkgate back home to south Liverpool.

Colin said: “So we had been to Parkgate for a meal with our son Mason when I heard my wife shouting ‘look there’s Paul.’

“He had just got out of a car and we had stopped at the lights. I wound the window down and shouted ‘Paul.’

He shouted back ‘You alright.’

“I then told him that I went to the same school as him. He asked me which one and I said Liverpool Institute. He asked me who was my teacher and said I can’t remember but that Mr Parker was the head.

“The lights then changed and we had to go. I shouted ‘See ya’ and he waved goodbye.

“He had just got out of a car with his daughter Stella.”

Colin said that his family also shared another connection with the McCartney family.

He said: “My son Mason goes to Stella’s former fashion school St Martins in London. So we have two things in common with the McCartneys.”

Colin , who worked as a DJ for 35 years, said he is a life-long Beatles fan.

He said: “They have always been a massive band for me and I really enjoyed the Love album which re-mastered some of their famous songs.

“I think ‘My Life’ is a favourite song and Macca has always been my favourite Beatle.”

Sir Paul was also spotted at Liverpool’s Lime Street station on Sunday when he was accompanied by his daughters Stella and Mary, and his wife Nancy Shevell.

On Friday the famous singer songwriter paid tribute to his first wife, Linda, on what would have been her 80th birthday on Friday
