Politicians must do more to solve Britain's housing problems, a professional body has warned, after a survey revealing Britons' fears over property was released.
The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) claimed that the country's housing issues were causing "misery for millions of people", with the younger generation particularly affected.
CIH chief executive Grania Long added:
All parties must do much more to convince the people of Great Britain that they can address the issue.
Now is the time for action - we're challenging all parties to put tackling the housing crisis front a centre in their manifestos.
To have any hope of tackling our housing crisis we must drastically increase the number of new homes we build across all tenures."
