Worst monthly figures since records began.

Mortgage approvals reach new low

The number of new mortgages being approved for house purchase hit a new low point in April, according to figures from the Bank of England. Just 58,000 such mortgages were approved, the lowest since the Bank began reporting the figures in 1993. That was 8% fewer than in March and nearly half the level of lending being approved a year ago. Mortgage lending is expected to slump this year because of the credit crunch and a shortage of money to lend.
