House prices 'still on the slide', Land Registry says

House prices in England and Wales are still falling, according to the latest survey from the Land Registry.

It says the average property price fell by 1.1% in March to £160,996, leaving prices 2.3% lower than a year ago.

The data paints a different picture from that of the Nationwide, which earlier said prices had been "fairly static" over the past six months.

Hugh Pym reports.
