A CORNWALL resident has threatened report Gordon Ramsay to police as the controversy surrounding his stay there amid the coronavirus lockdown rumbles on.
The celebrity chef, 53, has angered locals by shacking up in his £4million second home in the county after the government announced strict rules to stem the spread of Covid-19.
Time is not healing the resentment felt by some locals who have taken to Twitter and Instagram to vent about Gordon.
He was called "disgusting" and accused of "flouting government rules" by one user.
They raged: "Don’t you realise that by doing that you’ve possibly brought the virus with you and because Cornwall is not your main residence, if you and your family get sick you will place yet more strain on an already fragile infrastructure.
"I’m reporting you to the police. What you’ve done is against the law and I hope they force you back to London."
Another bluntly wrote: "P**s off out of Cornwall, you're not wanted."
A third vented: "Cornwall MPs have specifically asked for people with a second home not to do this. You might be rich and famous but you’re not special and you’re setting a bad example! Really disappointing."
Gordon appeared to hit back at recent criticism after receiving a gift of asparagus.
The F Word chef gushed about the generous gesture after one of his neighbours delivered the fresh veg to his door.
Gordon quipped the gesture oozed "love thy neighbour" sentiment.
The comments were posted on his Instagram Stories alongside a video of the veg and a hand-written note.
He added: "Now what a lovely, beautiful, generous little gift.
"A little gift from the fields across your house.
"C’mon, seriously, that’s literally growing in the back of my garden.
"Now that’s what I call love thy neighbour, see?
"That’s how you look after each other across these difficult times. There you go."
It came after The Sun reported how he was being targeted by some living near Polzeath Beach for going against government guidelines and moving his family to Cornwall during the lockdown.

The TV star was also reportedly seen getting into a row with a local shopper seemingly unhappy about the way the chef's Land Rover Defender was parked.
Witnesses said the bust-up occurred near Polzeath Beach and added the chef kept his cool throughout the dispute.
The other man – carrying a Tesco bag – confronted Gordon about the size and parking of the shiny black Land Rover, reports MailOnline.
Pictures show the man gesturing towards the Kitchen Nightmares star – who can seen over the roof of the 4×4.
The man then walked off and the TV chef could be seen getting into his car with a bag of shopping and a coffee.
It comes as locals in the West Country have called for action to be taken on people fleeing to their holiday homes to beat the pandemic.
Second home owners and holidaymakers have been accused of sneaking into the area and potentially bringing the virus with them.
Local authorities asked for road blocks to stop people flooding towards tourist hotspots.
