Young adults living at home: 'No choice but to live with family'

A quarter of young people in the UK now live with their parents, official figures show.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said more than 3.3 million adults between the ages of 20 and 34 were living with parents in 2013, 26% of that age group.

The number has increased by a quarter, or 669,000 people, since 1996.

Krissy Josephides, 27, lives at home with her parents. She discussed her situation with Karen Gask, senior research officer at the ONS, who wrote the report.
