Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have sparked complaints from neighbours over plans to put up a metal wall around their London home.
The stars are seeking government permission to replace a wooden fence with a 10-foot (3-metre) barrier to separate their garden from those of their neighbours.
Paltrow and Martin allege they need to erect the wall for security reasons - but their neighbours in the British capital's Belsize Park area have complained about the plans.
One unidentified resident tells Britain's Sunday Telegraph, "It's rather over the top. Who cares who he (Martin) is. You can't get round the sides of the houses and into the gardens anyway. Other houses in the street are as much at risk of opportunist burglaries. We don't ask for huge fences between our homes."
