Paul McCartney's London home has been broken into.

Met Police were called to the Beatles legend's £10 million home in the city's northwest last Friday, where they found signs of forced entry.

No arrests have been made, and it's not clear if anything was stolen.

"There were blue flashing lights and police everywhere - four or five cars," a neighbour told the Daily Mail.

Another said they hope the break-in doesn't spook the 76-year-old, because outside of being one of the world's most famous musicians, he likes to live a normal life.

"He walks around without a bodyguard, chats with people, walks in the park… After what happened to John Lennon, you've got to be pretty bloody careful."

It's believed neither McCartney nor his wife Nancy Shevell were home at the time, with the 'Get Back' singer having played a show in Vienna the night before.

Lennon was shot dead by a mentally ill fan in 1980, not long after signing a record for him. In 1999, Beatles guitarist George Harrison was stabbed in the chest by an intruder, who thought he was on a mission from God.

The 'Taxman' songwriter recovered, but died two years later of cancer.

McCartney reportedly showed no signs of worry when he took to the stage in Liverpool on Wednesday night.
