More bad news for first time buyers as yet another market leading rate gets the chop. This time it's Virgin Money's Help to Buy ISA as they cut the rate from 2.5% down to 2%.

This move by Virgin Money now means it is no longer in our Top Rates ISA table and is surprisingly replaced by Barclays Bank.
