Heather Mills, who fears she’ll end up like John Lennon, can’t afford to piss off the police. But it appears she’s done just that: officers from her hometown in Brighton are fed up with Mills’ frequent calls to 999, most of them complaints about photographers staking out in front of her property. Chief Superintendent Kevin Moore talks to The Times:
“We are having to spend a disproportionate amount of time on one particular person,” he said. “We are duty-bound to respond, but clearly people who make lots of calls to the police run the risk of being treated as the little boy who cried wolf.
“Officers who have attended previously to find there have been no grounds might not take any claims seriously, and that’s the danger we face.”
Perhaps prison will provide Heather with the 24-hour police protection she so desires. Mills and other activists could face charges for trespassing on farmland in order to expose the inhumane treatment of pigs. From Digital Spy:
According to reports, Mills joined Viva! activists on a raid of Briarwood Farm in Greinton to film conditions inside the farrowing crates. The video reportedly shows Mills standing next to a breeding sow while she criticises the conditions inside the crates.
Michael Underhill, the owner of the farm, is reportedly planning to take legal action against Mills.
He said: “This is trespass. We can’t just have people coming on to the farm whenever they choose.”
Also: “I’m not a publicity-seeker,” says Dancing with the Stars contestant Heather Mills.

That’s equivalent to the average British couple’s carbon footprint for ten years, says the Oxford-based firm. It would take an Indian couple 123 years to cause similar ecological damage.”
