Grovelling: Osbourne apologises forfoulrant onradioat SuBo,right London Lite Wednesday, 11 November 2009 15 owners round-the-clockprotection by kevin widdop measures which they say will turn a potential squat into an inhabited property, making any attempt to enter the property illegal. For a six-storey Belgravia townhouse, their basic package would cost about 1,700. The property would be professionally sealed, meaning squatters would be unable to gain entry without causing criminal damage. A client would have to pay around 2,600 per week for 24-hour protection. Andrew Walker, a Forbes Risk director, said: We have a lot of wealthy clients who for obvious reasons do not want squatters in their properties. Squatting, particularly in wealthier parts of London, is becoming an epidemic. We have some crazy laws in this country and squatters are realising just how easy it is to get into very expensive homes. We have ways to get these people out for our clients. Last month a group of squatters occupied a house doors away from the home of the ex-wife of Chelsea billionaire Roman Abramovich and the couples five children. Squatters cause hassle, said Mr Walker. Mrs Abramovich, for example, has a young family and was understandably alarmed. The squatters who occupied the property near Mrs Abramovich have since taken over a 20m house in the Belgravia street where the King and Queen of Jordan have their London residence. The group, who call themselves the Belgravia Squatters, said they entered the 42-room house legally through an open window and have invited key workers struggling to afford accom- modation to join them. on 2,600 a week Inbrief Anti-war demo soldier faces jail A soldier who faces a court martial for refusing to return to Afghanistan has been charged with five further offences after leading an anti-war protest in london last month. lance Corporal Joe Glenton could get up to 10 years in jail.

Squat-proof: ChrisJohnson and Andrew Walker, of Forbes Risk SHARON OSBOURNE has issued a grovelling apology to Susan Boyle after she said the Britains Got Talent star looked like a slapped a**e. The 57-year-old wife of Ozzy Osbourne sparked a backlash following her comments on a US radio show last week. She branded SuBo a hairy a***hole who had been hit by the ugly stick, and added: You just want to say God bless -- and heres a Gillette razor. The clip was posted on YouTube, angering the singers army of fans. They got their revenge on Monday by voting the singer sexier than Sharon in a poll by popular TV show Access Hollywood. But Sharon backed down today and issued an apology. She said: Susan Boyle is a lovely gracious woman and I took advantage of that by poking fun at her. I would never want to be responsible for hurting Susan and I must apologise for getting a cheap laugh at her expense. The pair avoided a showdown on Dancing With The Stars, the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, when Susan sang on the show last night. Sharon is usually in the audience to watch her daughter Kelly, who is a contestant, but was absent. Kelly, who found herself in the bottom two but was saved by the judges, defended her mothers comments, saying: Its just one of those things . . . shes my mum and I have her back no matter what. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html48.html49.html50.html51.html52.html53.html54.html55.html
