Four feared lost in helicopter crash

A Chinese hotel magnate and a French wine entrepreneur are feared dead with two others after their helicopter crashed hours after they had agreed the sale of a luxury Bordeaux chateau.

Lam Kok, owner of Hong Kong-based hotel group Brilliant, bought the 148-acre Chateau de La Riviere on Friday from former owner James Gregoire, who then took Kok, his 12-year-old son and a Chinese interpreter on a helicopter tour of the property. One unidentified body was recovered late on Friday and police said more searches were being launched.
