These extraordinary young people are all making waves in their respective industries - and they haven't yet celebrated their 30th birthdays. 

From media and marketing to technology, art and entertainment, these British stars have all been named to the prestigious Forbes 30 Under 30 in Europe List.  

Well-known faces on the list include Jess Glynne, Daniel Radcliffe and Joe Alwyn, Taylor Swift's boyfriend who is tipped to become one of Britain's brightest film stars.

But there are also a number of figures who are lesser known - although no less influential - including a pioneering London gallerist and a technology whizz who is using artificial intelligence to better manage finances.

There are also business partners determined to make therapy more accessible, a duo of futuristic builders and Team GB Olympian Dina Asher-Smith.

So read on to find out more about the next generation of movers and shakers...
