LONDON (AP) — Residents of London's Neo Bankside apartment complex enjoy spectacular views over the city. But some are unhappy at being on display themselves.

Owners of four apartments have gone to court, saying that a viewing platform at the Tate Modern art gallery next door lets hundreds of thousands of tourists a year peer into their homes.

They want to force the gallery to close off part of the 10th-floor terrace, which offers 360-degree views over London.

A lawyer for the homeowners told a judge Friday that the platform, used by up to 1 million people a year, constitutes a "relentless" invasion of the residents' privacy.

The gallery's board says the simple solution is for the residents to draw their blinds, "and, as necessary, to put up curtains."
