Many people are being forced to cut back on their spending, as a result of the ongoing cost of living crisis. And, anyone wanting to buy a new home is under particular pressure as the Bank of England continues to hike the base rate, forcing up the price of mortgages.

But, for the lucky few who can afford to splash out on a new property, certain areas of St Helens could have what they are looking for - from spacious rooms to the latest mod cons.

So, which areas have the most expensive house prices? Every three months, the Office for National Statistics releases highly localised figures showing how average sale prices vary across the suburbs, towns and villages of England and Wales.
