George Clooney has won new privacy laws ahead of his wedding to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin.

US Weekly reported that fans or paparazzi now face a hefty £400 fine for approaching or swimming up to his villa on Lake Como.

George, 53, plans to marry human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, in September and has been considering Mexico and his villa on the Italian lake.

According to Us Weekly, local mayor Roberto Pozzi brought in the laws which are in force until the end of September, saying: "It is now completely forbidden to stop outside the entrance to Clooney's villa. It's a question of traffic and security.

"It is very dangerous and it's also an issue of privacy. We have never penalised anyone in the past.

"This type of action is designed to bring about a change in people's behaviour and create a more peaceful environment.

"We have to guarantee privacy and security for George Clooney and his guests."

The mayor told Us that an official request to hold the nuptials in Italy have not yet been lodged.
