House prices in London have risen by nearly 10% in the last year, adding to signs of a sharp north-south divide in the market.

A 9.7% increase in prices in London over the year to July helped to push the value of homes across England to a new high of £255,000 on average, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.
