The judgement is reported by PA: Heather Mills was "a less than impressive witness" whose evidence was "not just inconsistent and inaccurate but also less than candid", a High Court judge says in a ruling the former model did not want the world to see. The full judgment of the divorce battle between Miss Mills and estranged husband Paul McCartney was released today after her attempt to appeal Mr Justice Bennett's decision to release it failed at the Court of Appeal. The judge described Sir Paul McCartney's evidence as "balanced". He said: "He expressed himself moderately though at times with justifiable irritation, if not anger. He was consistent, accurate and honest." Mr Justice Bennett said Heather Mills was a "strong-willed and determined personality" who had shown great fortitude in overcoming her disability. He said: "She has conducted her own case before me with a steely, yet courteous, determination." The judge described her as a "kindly person" who is "devoted to her charitable causes".
