David Cameron said the Help to Buy mortgage scheme was bringing "peace of mind" to young home owners as he insisted it was not causing damage to the property market.

The Prime Minister said the £3.7 billion initiative was helping young people "who don't have a rich mum or dad" afford to buy their own homes as well as boosting the house-building industry and the wider economy.
