FRANCE / UK : Brit.Tycoon Objects To Smelly Food Stand.


      Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones...the ultra rich former chief of cosmetics giant L'Oreal...wants a court to shut down a food stand near his chic winter getaway in the French Alps.
     He claims it is a 'visual, auditory and olfactory nuisance."
     He can't stand the smell of its sizzling fat.
     The food stand owner says she resents his request...and accuses him of acting like a feudal lord crushing French 'peasants.'
     She says she offered to sell him the stand for 500,000 euros...but he countered with only 50,000.
     He..."comes here for a month a year...while I am working thru the whole winter season," she noted.
