StockMarketWire.com - UK average house prices fell 0.2% in May to £237,808, according to lender Halifax.

The decline was shallower than market expectations of a 0.7% drop.

'This is the third successive monthly fall, though more modest than in April, and reflects a continued loss of momentum following what was a strong start to the year,' Halifax managing director Russell Galley said.
