Man Utd legend Sir Alex again in dispute with neighbours

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is again challenging his neighbours over their plans to build a three-storey mansion next to his £2.3m home.

The United legend's protests saw the initial plans for the new build rejected last year, but they have now been resubmitted with a number of changes made.

Ferguson admits that the alterations go “some way to reducing the building's prominence", but the former manager is unhappy with the height of the central section of the project, according to The Sun.

The 78-year-old also criticised the proposed mansion's “visual mass and bulk", which is not in keeping with his neighbourhood in Wilmslow, Cheshire.
