In a world of spiralling house prices it is good to learn young people in Burnley still have a reasonable chance of owning their own home.

Figures released last week report that Burnley is one of the most affordable places in the region to buy your own property.

Looking around the area, it is also good to see the progress being made on improving the ageing and decrepit housing stock that has no place in 21st Century Britain.

And new developments are starting to really transform some of the old terraced back-to-back wards and offer young people the chance to buy or part-buy their first house or flat.
