A delegation of The Accident Group (TAG) ex-employees set off for Marbella last week to confront their ex-boss Mark Langford.

After seeing him lounging on the deck of his £2.5m yacht (moored not far from his £4m mansion), they decided to fly out and persuade him to pay the wages of his 2,500 workers from his £40m personal fortune.

Langford sees himself as a benevolent millionaire. But Backchat fear his charitable days may be over.
