Property sales grew at their fastest annual rate in 10 years in the six months to September 2013 as the housing market revival spread across England and Wales, according to a report.

The North, the West Midlands, Wales and London were named by the Lloyds Bank research as the regions with the biggest proportion of "property hot spots". One hundred per cent of towns in these regions recorded a year-on-year increase in home sales.
