The triangle shaped garden, part of Michael’s estate in Highgate, north London, was flooded with flowers and cards from faithful fans willing to pay tribute to their late idol. Heavy rain has turned the ground to mud, while the huge amount of visitors descending on the garden has degraded the area. Neighbours say they are reluctant to take action over the memorial garden though the singer’s family has not shown any support, at least yet. The Highgate Society’s environment chair Elspeth Clements told local paper Ham & High: “We don’t think it’s within our remit to get involved. We are keen on some kind of charitable foundation being set up in his memory, but ultimately it comes down to the family’s wishes. We want to abide by what they feel is appropriate.” Fans demand a permanent statue of their idol to be installed in the garden.
