The move by the direct bank comes as mortgage rates reach unprecedented low levels.

Andy Forbes, Head of Retail Products at first  direct commented:  "Over the last month we have seen competition increase in the mortgage market.  In particular our five year fixed rates have been extremely popular.  In response to this demand we have lowered the rates on many of our five year fixed rates, to ensure our customers have access to our most competitive rates."
