Preston North End owner Trevor Hemmings has increased his fortune once again.

Mr Hemmings now has an estimated wealth of £1.025bn.

That is up £25m according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

Mr Hemmings is ranked 11th in the North West, down from 10th last year.

The 156-page special edition of this weekend’s Sunday Times Magazine reveals the wealth of the 1,000 richest people in Britain in its 31st annual edition.

Britain’s youngest billionaire, the 28-year-old Duke of Westminster, has seen the family fortune grow by £136m this year, cementing his position as the richest person in the North West.

The Grosvenor family seat is at Eaton Hall, near Chester. Assets have steadily grown to nearly £4.9bn in 2017, up £110m in a year.

Within the top North West regional rankings alone, the success and failure of the British high street is evident.

Tom Morris ranks second in the region, up £100m in the last year as his Home Bargains shopping chain became Merseyside’s biggest employer.

More than 23,000 people are now employed by the Home Bargains organisation, and assets of £912m increase its worth to £3.5bn.

The Arora family (B+M Bargains) are ranked third with £2.26bn.

John Whittaker, ranked fourth, owns 27.32 per cent of Intu, but he is still down £300m from last year to £1.95bn.

Others in the list include the Blackburn-based Issa brothers (EuroGarages), equal eighth at £1.2bn; Fred and Peter Done fifth with £1.25bn; and Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell 13th with £750m.
