House prices are rising faster here than anywhere else in the country.

New figures released by the Land Registry today show property in Newham increased in price by an average of 20.29 per cent from September 2015 to September this year.

That puts the cost of the average home in the borough at £371,139, up by £62,596 in 12 months.

The national average is £217,888, while in London it is £487,649.

Back in January 1995 – the earliest date covered by the records – the average Newham home cost £53,539.
