New aerial shots show mechanical diggers standing abandoned at the plush £6million Cotswolds home owned by David and Victoria Beckham as renovation work lags months behind schedule. The lavish country pile was purchased by the couple from an old Etonian pal of David Cameron, and they had hoped to move in over the summer. But bureaucratic red tape has seen the project grind to a halt, and it now looks unlikely the family (pictured, top inset) will be able to move in this year. They have spent recent weeks at their home in Los Angeles while the long-running saga rumbles on after planners from West Oxfordshire District Council blocked elaborate work on the property, meaning a new application had to be lodged. On the country estate, huge heaps of gravel give little indication that work on the grounds will be completed anytime soon.

eMoov lists the least affordable places to buy a house

The findings by estate agent eMoov found that the average house price across the country is 6.05 times the average wage.

The report suggested that the gap between the current average wage and the wage required for a general mortgage approval of 4.5 times salary is £6,111. However, there are huge regional differences with the majority of the least affordable homes in London. The capital is the worst region in the country, with the average house price being 12.05 times the average wage. The exception is Purbeck in Dorset, which as an average earnings price ratio of 14.12. Other areas listed in the 10 least affordable areas include Oxford at 13.18 times, South Bucks in Buckinghamshire at 13.08 and Hertsmere in Hertfordshire at 12.95.
