Fear of repossession is not confined to the lower-paid as £11.6m mansion in London is forcibly put on market.

The six-bedroom house on Ilchester Place in the wealthy enclave of Holland Park has been repossessed and put on the market at £10 million. The property was owned by Robert Bonnier, 38, who shot to fame in the dot-com boom a decade ago with Scoot.com.

The company was valued at more than £3bn and his stake briefly was worth £130m before Scoot imploded, its demise hastened by an alleged dirty-tricks campaign.
