More than 80% homes in England are too expensive for a typical working family trying to get on the property ladder, a report has found.
Housing charity Shelter, which analysed more than 325,000 properties with at least two bedrooms for sale across England, found that just 17.9% of them were within the financial reach of a household with children on an average local wage, leaving the remaining 82.1% beyond their means.
Just 86 properties were found to be affordable to local families in the whole of London, compared with 16,134 in the North West.
