Winslet And Mendes Befriend The Neighbours

LATEST: Newlyweds KATE WINSLET and SAM MENDES have won the support of their neighbours as they struggle to resolve their planning permission wrangle.

The British twosome have suffered a number of setbacks in their attempts to renovate their GBP3.2 million ($5.12 million) mansion in the picturesque Cotswolds, south west England.

But despite facing delay after delay as council members obstruct their alteration plans, the couple's new neighbours are hoping that they will soon move in.

Local pub landlord STEVE RIX says, "I'd say 999 out of 1,000 people round here want Kate and Sam to get on with it the way they want to do it."

Councillors will make their final decision on the matter tomorrow (02JUL03).
