BBC business news. Although why its reported in the 'business' section is a little suspicious. Declans replacement mentioned there'd been a 'spring bounce' though main thrust were the stats quoted:

40% of 1st time buyers have parents help, 1 in 10 taking second jobs, working more overtime etc. to afford.

Neutral reporting, the presenters even sounding a little awkward & guilty about it. Ended by one abruptly saying, erm moving on in a mildly embarassed way..

Yes that was after a young FTB'er emailed in saying that the only way she got onto the ladder was by her parents having to get a second mortgage. She said it was disgusting her parents had to do that [or words to that effect]

Bloody hell we don't want a flood of emails like that coming in ....so lets quickly move on.....

To be honest, timings are very tight on Breakfast TV, that includes the City report and local news slot being presented just before the hour .
