Haringey is London's best performer

Price growth is no longer driven by prime central boroughs like Kensington and Chelsea Credit: David Cheskin/PA Wire

Rightmove is also seeing evidence that house price growth in London is no longer being driven by the wealthy "prime central" boroughs.

London's worst-performing borough in March was named as Kensington and Chelsea, where asking prices had dropped by 2.4% on the previous month.

But the average price tag for a home in the borough was still £2.1 million.

The English capital's best-performing borough was found to be Haringey, where prices had surged by 9.5% month-on-month to reach £597,634 typically.

Westminster and Camden, where average asking prices were above £1 million, were also among Rightmove's worst-performing areas in London in March, while Barnet and Hounslow, where prices were around £600,000-plus, were among the best.

Teenager who threatened to Taser a baby is jailed

A teenager who threatened to Taser a baby during a burglary in West London has been jailed for six years. 19-year-old Andre Shoy-Stone was part of a gang that broke into a woman's flat in Little Venice in September. She was asleep at the time.

Andre Shoy-Stone grabbed the woman's seven-month-old baby and demanded to be told the address of someone she knew. When she said she didn't know, her daughter was threatened with a Taser.

Detective Constable Nick Howard said: "This was a horrifying incident - there can be nothing more terrifying for a mother than her child being threatened in that way.

"Shoy-Stone was part of the group who ransacked the property but, despite extensive enquiries, other suspects remain outstanding and we would urge anyone with information to come forward."
