    By 'eck! It's Yorkshire's Robinson Crusoe: Brit who bought a cut-price island in the
    Seychelles 50 years ago... and still lives in blissful solitude with 120 giant tortoises

    And so how did this originally transpire?
    Million- and billionaires own other small islands in the Seychelles chain.
    Quite lengthy, entertaining article, along with many pictures and a video interview with Mr Grimshaw, at Daily Mail link above.
