Sir Paul McCartney's tribute to 'exuberant' Victor Spinetti

Tributes have continued to be paid to Welsh-born actor Victor Spinetti, who died yesterday.

Sir Paul McCartney, who worked with him in three Beatles films, said he would miss Spinetti's "loyal friendship".

Victor was a fine man, a great pal and a fantastic actor and someone I am proud to have known for many years.

His irreverent wit and exuberant personality will remain in my memory forever.

I will miss his loyal friendship, as will all the others who were lucky enough to know and love the wonderful Mr Spinetti.

– Sir Paul McCartney
