The combined wealth of the 171 UK billionaires is £597.269bn, up £106.582bn, or 21.7 per cent, on the total wealth of the billionaires in last year’s Rich List.

Mr Murray is chairman of Elland-based London Security plc, the fire protection business. Now aged 101, he is the oldest person in the Rich List.

The Healey brothers have closed the gap on the Murray family by £200m over the past year, largely due to the expanding Wren kitchen business, run by Malcolm Healey, which is now valued at £600m.

Eddie and Malcolm Healey saw their wealth rise by £200m and they are now valued at £2.2bn.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, was born in Lancashire but lived in Hull until he was 18 years old, saw his value fall by £5.82bn. The owner of chemical company Ineos slipped from number five on the list to 25.
