Help on the property ladder from County Council

More than 500 first-time buyers in Nottinghamshire could be helped to get a foot on the property ladder thanks to a new mortgage support scheme.

The County Council has set aside fifteen million pounds from its reserves to loan to people struggling to raise a deposit.

The council says the plan will benefit the wider economy.

But critics say it's gambling with taxpayer's money.
