Sir James Dyson topped the Sunday Times Rich List for the first time after increasing his net worth by £3.6bn in a year.

The billionaire investor who made his fortune with the invention of the bag-less vacuum cleaner which went on sale in 1993, is said to worth $6.6 billion as of July 2020.

A self-made man, Sir James  grew up in Norfolk in the 1950s and studied art before his art college principal suggested he go into design, BBC reported.

After inventing a wheelbarrow in 1974 which used a spherical wheel – designed to be easier to manoeuvre – he then set about creating the product for which he is best known after seeing an industrial extractor and imagining how it could be downsized for home use.
