Bovis Homes: 'We're ahead of schedule'

Bovis Homes, one of the biggest house builders in the UK, has released its financial results for the first half of the year.

It reported a rise of 43% in the number of homes being reserved by buyers.

David Ritchie, chief executive of Bovis, told the Today programme's business presenter his company's homes were "90% sold for this year".

"That's given us the confidence for building early next year," he added.
