Rock legend Jimmy Page has won his war with pop star neighbour Robbie Williams as the former Take That singer has apparently dropped plans to renovate his home.

Williams submitted a proposal to local planning chiefs for permission to modernise his $28 million (£17.5 million) mansion in west London by building a costly extension.

However, Led Zeppelin veteran Page, who lives nearby, penned a strongly worded letter to London's Kensington and Chelsea Council officials, expressing concerns that the constant drilling may damage his home, which he has owned since 1972.

He even hired a team of architecture experts to back his claims that the vibrations would affect the property, but it now appears Williams has dropped his application as the architects behind his proposed project have withdrawn the plans.
