Beatles - George Harrison's Widow Under Fire Over Security Fence Plans

Subscribe to Beatles alerts

The widow of Beatles star George Harrison is under fire over renewed plans to put up a razor wire security fence around her home.
Olivia Harrison has requested permission from her local council to erect a seven-foot (two-metre) high fence around her lavish mansion in Henley-on-Thames, England, in a bid to keep herself safe from trespassers, according to Britain's The People newspaper.
However, the move has attracted criticism from neighbours, with one telling councillors, "I can't think of a more unneighbourly act than putting up razor wire."
Olivia triumphed in a legal battle in 2009 to build a similar fence after her late husband, who passed away following a battle with cancer in 2001, was stabbed in his own home by an intruder.
