Paul McCartney has vowed to never play China after seeing a video of cats and dogs being killed for their fur.

He was shown the undercover footage shot by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in a fur market in Guangzou, south China. In the film, dogs and cats were tortured, including being thrown off a double decker bus and then skinned for their fur.

In an interview with the BBC, Macca, a staunch animal rights campaigner, described it as barbaric and horrific.

"It's like something out of the dark ages. And they seem to get a kick out of it. They're just sick, sick people.

"I wouldn't even dream of going over there to play, in the same way that I wouldn't go to a country that supported apartheid.

"This is just disgusting. It's just against every rule of humanity. I couldn't go there. If they want to consider themselves a civilised nation they're
going to have to stop this."
