HOMES close to Premier League football grounds have increased their value at double the rate of those across the country over the last decade - except in Newcastle.

Prices in the postal districts of the 20 clubs kicking off the 2013/14 season have risen by PS353 a week on average over the last 10 years, but the area around St James' Park was the only area where house prices have fallen between 2003 and 2013.

The average value of properties close to its home ground slid by 11%.

Most of the price rises were near newer grounds than St James', the Halifax said.
