UK's priciest garage sold for almost $1m

Disused garage in south London is sold at an auction, making it the most expensive in the country.

    A garage next to an industrial estate in London has become the most expensive in Britain after selling at auction for almost a million dollars.

    It's an example of the rocketing property prices in London, driven by foreign investors, who are pricing first time buyers out of the market.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from London.
