Thursday, January 10, 2013 - British funnyman Harry Enfield is embroiled in a dispute with his London neighbours over his plans to transform a local pub into a luxury home.

Local councillor Chris Naylor tells the London Evening Standard, "It is a

Enfield has moved to appease objectors by writing a letter to other residents to explain his decision.

The note reads, "I have been a resident of Primrose Hill since 1988, my family since 1929...
