Property billionaire Eddie Healey – who made his fortune from deals including the £420 million sale of Meadowhall – again tops an annual list of the richest people in Yorkshire.

Together with his brother Malcolm, Eddie, now 76, is worth £1.3 billion – but that’s down £200m on last year.

Paul Sykes, who also made millions from the sale of Meadowhall, comes sixth on The Sunday Times Rich List. With personal wealth of £650m, he is currently using some of his money to underwrite UKIP’s advertising campaign for next week’s European elections.
