London continues to lead the way as Britain's fastest-growing region in terms of house prices, according to new Land Registry figures revealing average gains and falls across the UK during the month of June.

Recording an annual increase of 9.2 per cent, house prices in the capital reached an average of £481,820. The South-East - including Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, East and West Sussex, Hampshire, Kent and Surrey - comes a close second, with prices up 8.4 per cent. Yet at £247,375, the average is significantly lower.

Together with the East of England, these are the only regions where average prices top £200,000. 

The North-East recorded the most significant monthly growth, at three per cent. However, with the average house costing £102,064, the region's prices are among the lowest in Britain - and almost five times cheaper than London.
