Richest 1% of UK households are worth at least £3.6m each
New ONS figures reveal inequality gap growing ever wider before the coronavirus pandemic
The richest 1% of households in the UK each have fortunes of at least £3.6m, according to new official figures that show the inequality gap was yawning even before the pandemic struck.
At the other end of the scale, the poorest 10% of households have just £15,400 or less, with almost half burdened with more debts than they had in assets, according to figures released on Friday by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
