Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has been ordered to remove a beach hut
from his seafront mansion in East Sussex, England or face prosecution.
According to the Brighton and Hove City Council, Gilmour's yellow
bicycle storage hut is an eyesore and out of place in the conservation
area.

Gilmour's
wife, Polly Samson, has appealed unsuccessfully against the board's
decision. The council has since made it clear that if the hut is not
removed by the end of this month, they will enforce the ruling by having
the structure taken down at Gilmour's expense.
