Last night a lightening strike set Richard Branson’s exclusive $53,000 per night Necker Island resort on fire and burnt it to the ground.
Tropical storm Irene is rumbling through the Caribbean as we speak wreaking havoc in her stroppy path.
Actress Kate Winslet was holidaying there at time and helped get every one out – including her own kids and Branson’s 90 year old mum… the same mum who will fly into space as soon as her son gets his Virgin Galactic into orbit.
Sir Richard has already uploaded a blog with photos and a 17 second video of the flames licking up the building. Have a look here: Necker Island drama >>>
