The number of social homes being built in rural England has fallen by more than 80% in the last six years.

Exclusive research for Sky News has found just 1,309 social houses were built in rural areas in 2017-18, despite hundreds of thousands of people stuck on long waiting lists.

Sky News and the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) can reveal that social housing – previously known as council housing – has fallen by 83% between 2011-12 and 2018.
