Chairman of Sotheby's shot on grouse moor
Sotheby’s chairman Henry Wyndham is recuperating after he was shot in the face during a grouse shoot. Mr Wyndham was reportedly standing at his butt when a gun near him was accidentally fired, leaving him with 52 lead pellet wounds. It is thought that he would have been blinded had he not been wearing glasses. A Sotheby’s spokesman said: “Henry Wyndham sustained an accident on the grouse moor and is currently on track for a full and rapid recovery.”
