Hairstylist sues Mills for€57k

Paul McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills has been sued by a Los Angeles hairdresser who claims the former reality TV show contestant failed to pay as much as $80,000 (€57,800) as she pursued stardom in Hollywood.

David Miramontes claims that he worked for Mills (43) starting in 2005 and quit in 2008 after she repeatedly failed to pay him.

Mills and McCartney married in 2002 in a lavish ceremony in Ireland and divorced in 2008.

Nepal plane

crash kills six

An army plane crashed in a remote mountainous region of west Nepal while bringing a sick person to the capital, killing six people.

The Britten-Norman Islander plane, flying from Nepalgunj, lost contact last night about 125 miles west of Katmandhu.

There were two crew members on board, along with a doctor, nurse and a relative of the sick person.

Bad weather made rescue helicopters turn back.
