Home repossessions lower than expected
A survey carried out for Shelter has shown that millions of Britons are finding it difficult to keep up with rent and mortgage payments.
Despite this, figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) show that the number of home repossessions have been much lower than expected.
The CML said that the number of home repossessions has fallen to its lowest level since 2007 in the third quarter of this year.

It's shocking to think that so many families will be starting the New Year with a huge weight hanging over them, trapped in a daily struggle to keep their home.
Payday loans may seem like a quick fix, but the huge interest charges mean things can quickly spiral out of control.
It's vital that anyone who's having difficulty paying their rent or mortgage gets advice now.
Don't wait until things reach breaking point later in the year - it could leave your family's home at risk.
