A Derbyshire town has the fastest rising property prices in Britain, according to a property website.

Although the rate of growth in the British property market has slowed down, the general curve is still on the way up, according to Zoopla.

However not all parts of Britain have witnessed this growth, with property values falling in some places (in particular Wales and the North East of England) and rising in others.

The average house has increased by nearly £17 every day in 2017.

The typical home was valued at £304,469 in July – an increase of £3,039 since the start of 2017, according to analysis by the property website.
