Farmland prices across the East of England have hit a record high.

In less than 10 years the cost of land per acre has more than trebled, according to the latest Rural Land Market Survey.

During the first six months of the year an acre cost just over £7,000 - that's compared to 2004 - when one acre was around £2,000.
