A billionaire has angered his wealthy neighbours by winning permission to partly close a street for two weeks so a crane can hoist dozens of trees into his garden.

The Guardian reported that Richard Caring, the owner of exclusive London restaurant The Ivy and private members’ club Annabel’s, won permission from his local council to close part of Onslow Square in South Kensington, west London, for up to two weeks to winch trees into his £40 million ($46.7 million US) mansion.

His plan has caused uproar among locals, according to the Guardian.
