Newly married and struggling to buy a home

Michael Sergison, 32, moved out of his parents house after getting married to rent a one-bedroom flat with his wife in Merseyside. He dreams of buying his own home but says that there aren't enough affordable houses on the market.

Mr Sergison believes that elderly people should be given government incentives to move in to smaller homes.

"If we can help the older generation find suitable accommodation that would free up some good quality housing for the younger generation," he told Mishal Husain.
