More wealthy Hong Kong citizens buying UK properties

Real estate agents say the arrest of HK media tycoon will spur buying interest in the UK and elsewhere

The property market in the UK was buoyant in June and July despite the economic slump because lockdown was relaxed and there was also pent-up demand, real estate agents say.
