Heather 'celebrity dancer/porcine protester/divorce settlement vulture' Mills, or as she was beautifully dubbed by Sky News this morning, "Mills Pig Campaigner", is upset about the fact that despite her "seeking no publicity for my own financial pockets [sic]", she still somehow manages to keep drawing unwanted attention to herself. It really is an absolute mystery, isn't it?
Anyway the police in Brighton have, it seems, finally had enough of her calling 999. She has apparently made what they charitably describe as a "disproportionate" number of calls to emergency services - often as many as four a day. This she does because she finds herself being followed. Not by stalkers, rapists or irate soon-to-be-ex husbands, you understand, but by those evil violent photographer types. Diddums.
Anyway, here's her line of defence:
"The 38-year-old former model, who is divorcing ex-Beatle Paul McCartney, has complained of being followed by photographers near her home in Hove, East Sussex. Her sister, Fiona Mills, has made an internet appeal for an end to what she called media harassment of Lady McCartney and her daughter Beatrice, because of concerns for their safety.
Phil Hall, Lady McCartney's spokesman, said: "She has been followed late at night by people she does not know.
"The danger is that she will not call police in future and something serious will happen. What is she supposed to do?"'
I'm obviously no expert, but I'd say that if you don't want to be followed by camera-wielding folk in the dark, then avoiding illegally breaking and entering into other people's farms in the middle of the night while accompanied by a camera crew might be a good place to start.
