A Channel 4 celebrity has accused her neighbours of flouting planning rules with their balcony, leaving her “uncomfortable” when sunbathing at her £4m home in Dorset.

Celia Sawyer, who appeared in Channel 4’s Four Rooms, says her neighbour Neil Kennedy did not stick to the plans when he knocked down his £2m bungalow and built a modern three-storey self build in Poole’s exclusive Sandbanks.
