Cheap fixed-rate mortgages have come to an end, experts have warned, as banks raise costs in a bid to boost their profits despite the Bank of England keeping rates on hold.

It comes after a week which saw several major high street lenders increase the rates on their fixed rates deals. For example Nationwide Building Society is raising costs by up to 0.86 per cent, which would add more than £6,000 to the cost of a £150,000 loan over five years.
