"Britain's richest people are wealthier than ever before,
with a combined fortune of almost £520bn, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
The total wealth of the richest 1,000 individuals, couples or families jumped 15% in a year, the survey said.
Wealth expert Philip Beresford, who compiled the list, said he had never before seen such a "phenomenal" rise in personal fortune... Mr Beresford said: "The richest people in Britain have had an astonishing year. While some may criticise them, many of these people are at the heart of the economy and their success brings more jobs and more wealth for the country." - The total figure for the Rich List is equivalent to a third of the UK's gross domestic product."
