John Fears Wedding Sabotage
The Kiss the Bride hitmaker was horrified when Northern Ireland's first gay civil unions were marred by demonstrating Christian fundamentalist groups earlier this week (begs19DEC05), and has determined not to let anyone ruin his special day.
A police insider tells British newspaper The Sun, "We don't want a hint of trouble. Even just anyone trying to throw an egg."
A spokesman for Thames Valley police said on Friday (16DEC05): "Any extra policing costs incurred as a result of the event will not be met by the residents of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
"They will be met by the organisers."
