Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr on the moment they knew The Beatles was over

Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that he knew when The Beatles were about to call time on their successful career and can pinpoint the moment he realised their hearts weren't in it anymore. 

During an interview on The One Show, he explained that the band was performing live in 1966 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California when the end of their journey together moved into their horizon:

"It was OK, a lot of screaming and we didn't enjoy the gig and we were just hustled into this meat wagon (police vehicle), which was just like a chrome box and we are all just sliding around looking at each other thinking, 'Bloody hell!'"

McCartney's bandmate, Ringo Starr, added that they all felt as though they had "had enough": "We had just had enough, we knew that was the last gig. It was time. You can only do that for so long."
