Beth Thomas tells the Victoria Derbyshire programme how she has given up hope of getting on the property ladder.

It comes as a report by housing charity Shelter found nearly eight out of 10 families across England are unable to afford newly built homes in their local area.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News channel.
