More than a quarter of tenants who feel "trapped" in the rental system are aged over 40 and risk becoming "OAP mortgagees", a study has found.

Rightmove's Consumer Rental Forecast found that "trapped renters" - those who would like to buy but cannot afford to - make up the majority of the rental sector at 55%.
