007’s new foe was none other than foliage in his latest back garden battle
Daniel Craig is used to battling villains in his line of work as legendary agent 007, and it seems that the all-action spy doesn’t get any time off. His latest mission was a particularly tall order: the battle to keep an 80ft tree in the back garden of his Camden home.
The complaints of fellow north London residents were no match for Mr Craig who has been supported by Camden Council, which issued a Tree Protection Order in favour of the Bond actor.
The decision was made on the grounds that the tree was important to the character of the local area.
Craig and his wife, actress Rachel Weisz were caught up in the dispute about the tree after neighbours complained it was the cause of damaging cracks and subsidence in their properties.
Luckily for the Hollywood couple the tree will remain standing as part of the urban foliage and will continue to provide a home to local birds and wildlife who were shaken but notstirred by the news their home might be felled.
