Are Amal and George Clooney already unpopular in their new 'hood?

George Clooney has been labeled "the worst neighbour you could have".

The 54-year-old actor and his lawyer wife Amal Clooney, 34, are due to move into their £10million British riverside home - situated in Sonning Eye on the outskirts of Reading, Berks - at the end of July. However, construction on the property has been going on "for months", and the roar from heavy machinery, sanders and drills has been upsetting the locals.

One of George and Amal's future neighbours told The Sun newspaper: "Half the locals love having a celebrity in town, others think he's the worst neighbour you could have. The construction's been going on for months and will be lucky to finish before the year is out."

The married couple's luxury home is due to include a new annex with 12-seater cinema, a pool house and staff quarters, but is currently littered with skips, diggers, portaloos, temporary fencing and scaffolding, and work has not even started onthe 15-metre swimming pool.

The Clooney's new country estate reportedly comes with a ghost in the £10m price tag. (Twitter)

Construction on the site has been held up, as the architects were told to take special measures to prevent flooding in case the Thames bursts its banks, as well as searches for bats, voles and otter habitats, in case of any environmental concerns.
