Region's rich list revealed
Paul Sykes
Paul Sykes is worth 495m - the fourth richest in the region
Property developer Eddie Healey tops the Sunday Times Rich List for Yorkshire and the Humber with an estimated wealth of 1,260m.

In August last year his Stadium Developments group sold a retail park in Swansea for 57.7m.

But it was with the Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield that he made his money - selling it for 1.17bn in 1999.

The centre was developed by Paul Sykes, the fourth richest person in the region with 495m.

Following the sale of Meadowhall, Mr Sykes invested in and subsequently sold internet service provider Planet Online, based in Leeds, with Peter Wilkinson, himself the eighth entry with 205m.

A new entry to this year's list, published on Sunday 27 April, is Robert Miller, ranking second in Yorkshire and the Humber region, and 22nd nationally, with 975m.

Sporting estate

Mr Miller owns the 32,000 acre Gunnerside sporting estate in North Yorkshire.

He made his money from the Duty Free Shoppers chain, of which he sold his 38.75% stake for 949m in 1996.

Another new entry to the list is Michael Evans, of the Leeds-based Evans Property Holdings with 158m.

While Malcolm Heuck and his family-owned Heron Frozen Foods based in Hull, comes in at 886th nationally, with a fortune of 38m.

And Terence Bramall's 37m from his 72% stake in Keepmoat, a building company in Doncaster, puts him at 895th in the national ranking.
