Naomi Campbell hits the mop and bucket

Battling supermodel scrubs NY warehouse

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Naomi Campbell this morning began her five-day stint mopping New York floors as punishment for chucking a mobile phone at housekeeper Ana Scolavino, AFP reports.

The battling Streatham clotheshorse ignored the gloating press-pack who'd gathered outside the "run-down" Lower East Side Sanitation Department warehouse to welcome her, preferring to "stride" from a black SUV towards her temporary post.

Campbell was, for the record, sporting black patent stiletto boots, brown trousers and a knee-length black jacket. Reports that Philippe Starck designed the bucket and mop she is as we speak using to wipe the slate clean are unconfirmed.

As an agreeable footnote to this tale of woe, Campbell recently said she'd auction off the jeans and boots (designer as yet unknown) she's wearing for the job in aid of the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. ®
