Help for mortgage holders

Homeowners will have enough support to ensure that their homes are not repossessed, the government says.

The comments came after key mortgage industry figures met Chancellor Alistair Darling and Housing Minister Caroline Flint at 11 Downing Street.

But ministers did not outline how they would stop people losing their homes.

The Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) described the meeting as "useful" and said lenders were playing their part in keeping customers in their homes.

"We want to ensure there continues to be stability and fairness in the housing market, and that the support is in place for consumers who may need it right now," said Ms Flint, following the meeting.
