How Britain's homes are shrinking

Emma Woollacott

British homes have halved in size over the last 90 years, with children forced to share a bedroom in a fifth of households.

According to a Post Office report, the average size of a new three-bedroom home is just 925 square feet, compared with 1,647 square feet in 1924. And almost a third of people doubt if they'll ever be able to move to anywhere bigger.
