The rich have carried on becoming richer, with the latest Sunday Times Rich List revealing a 14% increase in wealth over the past year.

The 1,000 wealthiest people in the UK are now worth a combined £658bn, according to the survey.

14 new British billionaires emerged, thanks in part to a rising stock market since the Brexit vote last June.

'Winning' the list in terms of the biggest wealth increase this year was Cranleigh resident Lakshmi Mittal, who added more than £6bn to his £13.23bn fortune.

Sunday Times Rich List compiler Robert Watts noted greater diversity in its composition this year, including more women and people from ethnic backgrounds.

To find your spot on the Rich List, you need assets of at least £110m, up from a minimum of £103m last year.
