Bank of England governor Mark Carney is acutely aware of the risks of a housing bubble and is ready to step in with direct action to head off the threat, he said.

Mr Carney said he could use the new powers of the Bank's financial policy committee to curb surging house prices and uncontrolled mortgage lending.
