In case you hadn’t noticed, London house prices are having a bit of a moment.

There are lots of stats being bandied about, including Rightmove’s recent assertion that London home values increased 10% in October alone.

But the government’s Office for National Statistics typically keeps a calmer head than most in these cases, and its research into house prices is typically more comprehensive than most.

The ONS has released its own figures for London house prices and says that they grew 9.4% in the year to September 2013.

This boom in the capital is distorting average UK house price growth, pulling it up to 3.8% even though the average growth outside London and the South East was only 1.4%.

So are we on the brink of an almighty London housing bubble or not? You decide…
