  Madonna gets walkers off her land
Updated 18 June 2004, 16.25
Madonna
Madonna partly won her attempt to keep ramblers from walking across her 9m country estate on Friday.

Because of a new law, ramblers had the right to trek over part of her 1,200 acre estate, and Madge was worried photographers could get near her house.

An inquiry ruled walkers can only have access to half her land, and can't walk close enough to see her mansion.

Since moving in, Madonna has complained about low-flying planes, and suffered an attempted burglary.

Madonna argued that her land was used for shooting, so the public shouldn't be allowed to walk on it.

She also said letting people walk so close to her house was against her human rights.
