A new study has revealed that affluent Britons are accumulating wealth three times as fast as the destitute. 

According to a research study by the Office for National Statistics, total wealth for the richest tenth of British households increased by 21 percent between 2012 and 2014.

However, for the bottom half of all households, total wealth rose by just 7 percent during the same period.

There are now growing concerns that Britain is becoming an increasingly unequal society.
