House prices in East Anglia are still rising faster than most parts of the UK despite a slight slow down during March.

In the first quarter of 2014, property prices in East Anglia rose by 2.9% according to the Nationwide building society. Only two other regions - London and the North - saw bigger rises.

The average price of a house in East Anglia is £179,718, which is 9.5% more than a year ago.

Cambridge is fourth in the list of highest rising prices after Manchester, London and Brighton.

The city saw a 14% year-on-year increase with the average house now worth £405,540 which is more than in London.

Teachers on the march across the region

There was an impromptu day off school for many children in our region and an extra complication for working parents.

Many schools across the east were either closed completely today, or were open with just a few classes running, as teachers went on strike in a row over pay, workload and pension deals.
