    Sir Philip Green today apologised over plans to exploit a furlough loophole and rake in millions while axing 300 staff.

    The business tycoon's retail empire begged for forgiveness last night after being branded "morally and ethically bankrupt" by its own employees

    Had trouble with his yacht in the Med recently.

    'The $150 million and 90-meter-long super-yacht Lionheart has been docked at Monaco’s Port Hercule for over a week. Two crew members tested positive for coronavirus.

    The impressive luxury vessel belongs to Sir Philip Green, British billionaire and owner of Topshop, and his wife Lady Tina Green, who is a Monaco resident. The Lionheart is the biggest yacht ever built by historic Italian yacht-maker Benetti and was bought by Sir Philip Green for an estimated 150 million dollars. The yacht has space for 16 crew members and can welcome up to 12 people.

    At the time, the purchase of this yacht raised public concern in the United Kingdom. The super-yacht was bought by Green one year after the British tycoon sold BHS clothing stores to a little-known investor for £1.'
