Campaigners are calling for a change in the law to help those trapped by the hidden costs of buying a leasehold property.

They've been protesting outside an event for first time buyers in Greater Manchester.

Many home owners claim they're now unable to sell up and move out.

Hidden 'ground rents' attached to the land their houses are built on have scared mortgage lenders off.

They say they feel trapped.
