UK house prices continued to shrug off fears of an economic downturn and the cost of living crisis, posting the biggest monthly rise since early 2007 in June, according to Halifax.

A shortage of properties coming on to the market combined with continuing strong demand saw prices rise 1.8% from May, a 12th consecutive monthly increase, the mortgage lender said in a report Thursday.
