This just in. We love the collection of vacation retreats that Richard Branson has developed over the years and blogged about them here, Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Limited Edition Retreats, so it was a total surprise to hear that lightning had struck and Necker Island was burning down.

The Branson family was there, as was Kate Winslet and her family. The whole story here via BBC.
