Carney: BoE taking steps to avoid 'mortgage recklessness'

The Bank of England Governor Mark Carney has said that the Bank will continue to take steps to ensure mortgage lending does not become 'reckless'.

He also said that measures introduced in June, such as a 15% cap on lending, would keep the market under control.
