British singer Cliff Richard has been ordered to tear down an extension on his home after local officials ruled the structure illegal. Planning officials at Runnymede Borough Council deemed the glass conservatory "too big" and alleged it was added to the Surrey, England property in 2006 without proper authorization.

The pop veteran battled to save the structure and lodged an appeal against the council's decision, but his legal challenge has been dismissed and authorities have ordered him to demolish the extension. Richard's planning consultant, Dave Farrell, admits the star is dismayed by the ruling.

He says, "(The demolition order is) a bit silly. We're disappointed but it's just one of those things." Planning committee chairman Geoff Woodger, adds, "The decision confirms our view that the conservatory breached policy."

Beurocracy wanting to show their power by chopping down the tall poppies, but Cliff will shine and be bigger than them.
