BENJAMIN PELL, better known as Benji the Binman, yesterday won back £77,500 that he had paid John Mappin, a descendant of the Mappin & Webb jewellery dynasty, after he promised to make a "Hollywood blockbuster" about Mr Pell's life.

Mr Pell, known for rooting through dustbins for revealing documents about the rich and famous, sued Mr Mappin in the High Court for fraudulent misrepresentation after discovering that the "well-connected Hollywood film-maker" Mr Mappin had recruited was a hairdresser.
