A BRITISH actor who is the great grandson of Lord Camrose said he is aware of the covenant that his ancestor signed in 1953.

Joshua Sasse, who starred in the fairy tale themed musical comedy Galavant, told the Gazette “I know about the covenant”.

The 32-year-old father, who used to date Kylie Minogue, is the maternal great-grandson of Lord Camrose, whose daughter Diana Phyllis Berry was Joshua’s grandmother.

The Gazette revealed last week that we had found the lost covenant on the Land Registry which states that the former home of Basingstoke Town Football Club must remain as a sports facility until 2053.

The historic document was signed by Lord William Berry, Viscount Camrose in 1953 and states that the Winchester Road site must remain as a football ground for 100 years, putting into question football club owner Rafi Razzak’s plans to build houses on it.

Mr Razzak’s company Centerprise bought the freehold to the ground in 2016, evicting the football club from its home ground last year, and there is now a dispute about whether the covenant still applies.

Mr Sasse told the Gazette that he is aware of the “land dispute with Mr Razzak” but offered no further comment on the situation.
