Glas­gow ranked sec­ond in a list of 20 UK cities for the vol­ume of house sales between 2015 and 2018, com­ing in be­hind Liver­pool which grew by 19 per­cent.

The in­dex cre­ated by prop­erty site Zoopla found prop­erty sales have fallen by 13 per cent in the South over the same pe­riod.

While on av­er­age, sales in­creased by six per cent across cities in north­ern England over the three years.

Zoopla said af­ford­abil­ity pres­sures and higher stamp duty costs have par­tic­u­larly af­fected the South, with Brexit uncer­tainty also be­ing a com­pound­ing fac­tor.
