Police visit £4.6m Scottish estate of billionaire Russian oligarch, 62, after trip from London

A billionaire Russian oligarch was investigated over fears he broke coronavirus lockdown rules after travelling 470 miles from London to his £4.6m Scottish castle.

Boris Mints, 62, arrived at his 39-acre Tower of Lethendy estate near Blairgowrie, Perthshire, on February 17.

Stunned locals claimed he arrived last week immediately alerted Police Scotland to the potential rule break.

Officers spoke to Dr Mints – who is the founder of the O1 Group investment company – over the journey.

But police said he gave them an explanation for the trip and no further action was taken.
