Jet full of billionaires and young woman headed for villa in France ordered back to the UK

A GROUP of billionaires headed for a south of France £50,000 a night luxury villa were barred from stepping off their jet.

The party of 10, which included three businessmen, three women and other staff, were planning to spend the pandemic at a £60m villa called Alang Alang.

But customs and police officers stopped them from getting off their private jet and ordered them to return to the UK.

A member of the group claims they were travelling to the villa to finalise a business deal that would create hundreds of jobs, not for a holiday and called the French authorities “ignorant” and “stupid”.
