Campaign to kick out Doorstep Lenders

A rise in the number of so called Doorstep lenders in Southern Scotland has led to the Citizens Advice Bureau trying a new approach. It's set up a stall at Annan football club, the first time this has been attempted.

The Citizens Advice Service says that there has been an increase of 42 percent in the numbers of people who said they had a problem with doorstep lending in Dumfries and Galloway. And on average those people owed £1,200 to doorstep lenders.

Interest rates from doorstep lenders are around 1,000 percent
