In a letter to the council, seen by The Sun, Geri's neighbours have bemoaned that the stable 'destroys landscapes and views' while other locals are annoyed that Geri and her husband Christian Horner are flouting planning permission rules.

One reportedly complained: "They have even re-routed public footpaths and installed their own style gates, how is that being allowed?"

Their properties boast everything from swimming pools to a boating lake and even their very own farm at their country estate near Banbury, which is where the stable in question is.

During an interview with Luxury London in 2019, Christian said: "Restoring the farm has been my hobby – the way I put racing out of my mind. The main house is finished but now the barns are being converted. We’re currently putting the finishing touches to an indoor swimming pool."
