A COUPLE who won a £101million Euromillions jackpot have reportedly sparked a row with neighbours over CCTV camera installed at their estate.

David and Angela Dawes are understood to have installed seven security cameras at their East Sussex estate after a burglary, however according to a newspaper report, the pair installed the cameras without permission.

It comes after the incident in April where David, 56, was struck in the face and bound up with cable ties along with Angela, 52, before robbers fled with jewellery and around £20,000 in the couple's Range Rover.

Papers lodged at Rother district council reveal seven CCTV columns had been erected following a "burglary at the property".

Half a dozen residents objected to their bid to keep the CCTV cameras, which include thermal imaging and warning speakers, the Daily Mail reported.

In a letter to the council, one wrote: "As a regular walker along the public footpath where these cameras are positioned, I find it intrusive and mildly threatening to be filmed whilst merely walking in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

"As such, they are incongruous and completely unnecessary and should be removed immediately."

A second objector wrote: "They are not in keeping with the Elizabethan manor house, giving an appearance that is more industrial in nature.

"The sound warning is both a nuisance and pollutes the tranquillity and peace of the area."

A third added: "These CCTV security pillars and cameras are unsightly and inappropriate for the landscape of an AONB.

"They compromise people's privacy when walking on footpaths."

But in one of four letters of support, one neighbour wrote: "My family and I wholeheartedly support the CCTV cameras.

"We have lived on the drive for a very long time and have never felt safer.

"They are not intrusive and are a deterrent to the numerous thefts sadly happening in our area right now.

"We would be very disappointed if the cameras were taken down as we fully support the reasons why they were put up in the first place!

"We shouldn't have to go to extreme measures to protect ourselves but the world has changed and we must too!"

Another said: "We do not even notice them and quite frankly are very grateful that they are there.

"Everyone should have the right to feel safe in their own home."

The couple became Britain's seventh biggest winners when they landed the top prize in 2011.
