A seven-square metre studio - with hobs, a sink and shower right next to the bed - is being sold for £150,000 in London’s trendy Notting Hill.

A tiny London studio flat - close to David Beckham and Elton John’s west London pads - is so small it is being marketed as a “bolthole” as it cannot be used as a permanent residence or let out.

The bed is right next to two hot plates for cooking and the toilet is in a cupboard.
