LONDON, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Former Beatle Paul McCartney has complained that British broadcasters are banning a newly released song by his late wife, Linda, because it contains a swear word, The Times newspaper reported on Monday.

"I have not heard this record yet but the lyrics do not sound terribly profound," he told the Times.
