The figures showed while prices across the capital hit £517,919 in June, 5.4 per cent higher than in the same month last year, across the capital’s regions it’s a decidedly divided picture.

In the North West, average prices rose 42.1 per cent in the year to June, to £450,165; while in North London that rise was 20.2 per cent, to £688,540.
