Tree trouble for Claudia and husband

Model Claudia Schiffer is at the centre of a court probe over claims she and her film producer husband had two pine trees belonging to a multi-millionaire neighbour chopped down because they were blocking their view.
Willi Weber, ex-manager of F1 racing driver Michael Schumacher, is reportedly suing the supermodel and husband Matthew Vaughn after finding the trees had been removed from his neighbouring property on the Spanish island of Mallorca.
He says a specialist hired by the couple trespassed on his land after ignoring a warning to leave the trees alone, according to local media.
Mr Weber told reporters that he planned to build a high wall between his home and his neighbour's and bill them for the cost after what happened, warning: "Otherwise I will plant so many trees that they can only smell the sea."
