These are the richest people in Newport you've probably never heard of
There are plenty of very wealthy people in Wales and many of them have become household names.
Their business exploits over the years mean they have become famous in their own right.
Celtic Manor Resort owner and telecoms magnate Sir Terry Matthews often tops the Wales Rich List, published annually by Wales Business Insider, along with several other recognizable faces.
But the Wales Rich List list also features a number of people you might not have heard of, in spite of their wealth.
A fortune of £ 21m was required to make it into the top 100 on the most recent rich list.
Sir Terry Matthews remains Wales' only billionaire, with his wealth rising to £ 1.31bn from £ 1.24bn thanks to success at the Celtic Manor Resort and his other companies last year.
Here are some of the Newport millionaires you may not have heard of:
