The National Trust has applied for planning permission to open Paul McCartney's old home up to tourists. The trust bought the three- bedroomed terraced house in Forthlin Road, Allerton, Liverpool, last year.

McCartney lived there with brother Mike and their parents from 1955 until he soared to fame with the Beatles in 1963. He and John Lennon wrote Love Me Do and I Saw Her Standing There in the house.

A custodian will live in the house and deal with visitors, who will have to book tickets in advance and travel to the house by mini-bus from a car park two miles away.
