    Back in 2005, Irish millionaire Ben Dunne brought four football pitches, six tennis courts, one hockey pitch, one rugby pitch, two cricket squares, a rifle range, and a double storey pavilion. He paid £3million for this complex: the former-BBC Sports Ground in south west London.

    In typical fat-cat vs. the world style, Ben had plans for the site that the locals were strongly against. He wanted to build a fitness centre there (presumably by demolishing existing buildings), but never made an official application as the opposition from local residents was so fierce.

    Two years later, plans were underway to convert the entire site into a graveyard. Once again, the locals made some noise. A petition against this redevelopment was created and signed en mass – after all, who wants a burial taking place over their back garden, other than the hardiest of Goths?
