– Scot Young: Tycoon involved in £20 million divorce battle falls 60ft to his death (Telegraph, Dec 10, 2014):
The financier impaled himself on iron railings less than a year after acrimonious legal battle ended
A financier at the heart of one of Britain’s biggest divorce battles has died after falling from his £3 million home and impaling himself on iron railings.
Scot Young, 52, suffered horrific injuries after plummeting four storeys from a window of his luxury central London penthouse.
His death comes almost a year after an extraordinary legal fight with his ex-wife concluded at the High Court.
Michelle Young, 49, won a £20 million payout after a seven-year legal battle but declared the sum a “disgrace” and is never believed to have received the cash.
