Scot Young, the millionaire whose long-running divorce battle hit the headlines, has fallen to his death. The 52-year-old fell four storeys at the home in central London that he shared with his American fiancé Noelle Reno.
The tycoon had been trying to rebuild his life with his 30-year-old girlfriend, who is a fashion entrepreneur and HELLO! blogger.

His death on Monday afternoon comes almost a year after an extraordinary legal fight with his ex-wife concluded at the High Court.
Michelle Young won a £20million payout but insisted her ex-husband was worth billions and had hidden his money.
In 2009, after the couple had separated the financier offered her a £300 million settlement that would have helped care for their two teenage daughters Scarlet and Sasha. However, the following year Scot said that he had been bankrupted by a disastrous business deal.
Noelle stood by him in January last year when a judge jailed him for six months for refusing to disclose full details of his wealth to the court.
