York's been highlighted as an area where working families are being priced out of buying a home.

Shelter says only 3% of houses on sale in the city can be bought by the average family, compared to 1 in 10 across the country.

The charity's study looked at properties on the Zoopla website in one day in August, of 1,228 homes with two bedrooms or more only 38 were judged by Shelter to be affordable.

It's harder if you want to buy a house in the Easingwold area, only 2.6% of homes in Hambleton district were judged to be affordable to families. In Ryedale it was 4.2% and in Selby district it was 9.2% which is close to the national average.

But the situation is more promising if you want to buy a house in Pocklington, Market Weighton or Stamford Bridge as more than a quarter of homes in the East Riding were judged to be affordable for families.
