Late BEATLE John Lennon would have been furious at the state of the world 25 years after his death, according to his widow Yoko Ono.

Lennon spent much of his life campaigning for world peace and would have been tortured by news headlines dominated by war and terrorist acts.

Ono says. "I think he would have been very, very angry at what's going on in the world today, all the violence and corruption. He wanted the world to be a beautiful place for all of us, and we have a long way to go yet for that."
