Billionaire Asos Owner Loses Three Children in Sri Lanka Attacks

The billionaire Asos owner who lost three of his four children in the Sri Lanka terror attacks had revealed plans to hand his Scottish estates to them to carry on his legacy of conservation just days before they died. 

Anders Holch Povlsen, who is Scotland's biggest landowner with 220,000 acres to his name, has been working via his Wildland project to 'rewild' parts of Scotland, bringing back endangered species by reviving long-lost habitats.

In an open letter posted on the firm's website last week, Mr Povlsen and wife Anne Storm Pedersen wrote that the project will take longer than a lifetime to complete and so would be carried on by their children after they died.
