Life's A Beach For David Gilmour

Local council tells him to tear down his \"eyesore\" beach hut

A report in the Daily Mail says that the Brighton & Hove City Council has ordered the Pink Floyd guitarist to tear down a small beach hut at his £3m seafront property or face prosecution.

According to the story, a single complaint from a member of the public meant that the council had to investigate. 

A Brighton and Hove City Council spokeswoman said in a statement: "We have had a complaint from a member of the public and are legally obliged to act.

"As the planning appeal has failed, we have told the owners that the hut must be gone by October 1.

"If that doesn't happen, we would have no option but to issue an enforcement notice.

"Failure to comply with that means either prosecution or the council may remove the hut and charge the householder."
