Odeur de chipfat too much for Welsh perfume millionaire.
Multi-millionaire Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones and three neighbours have also demanded compensation, claiming the chip van in Val d'Isere has reduced their properties' value.
Sir Lindsay claims the stand is a "visual, auditory and olfactory nuisance" and contravenes hygiene and local planning bylaws. But chippy owner Valeire Maertens said: "Of course, rich people are bothered by having a chip stand in front of their homes, but some of us have to work for a living."
A court is due to rule on the fate of the chip van this month.
