A walk is taking place in Huddersfield today to highlight the problem of people relying on loan sharks.
It is being led by the town's MP, Barry Sheerman, who says more can be done for people to access affordable credit.
The walk - dubbed Sharkstoppers - begins at midday on New Street.

A demonstration by the English Defence League is due to take place in Wakefield later. A counter demonstration will also take place by the We are Wakefield group.
I wish to stress the EDL demonstration is expected to be a local event unlike the national events seen elsewhere in the region. Plans and resources are in place of course to deal with any eventuality but our intention is to facilitate peaceful protest while making sure local residents can go about their daily lives with the least disruption possible.
– Chief Superintendent Andy Battle of Wakefield District Police
Peaceful protest is lawful and everyone's right and West Yorkshire Police's role will be to facilitate this. I can reassure residents that officers will respond to anyone who commits a criminal act and they will be dealt with appropriately. The police will not tolerate damage to the city or acts of violence.

Councillor Richard Lewis said:

"There is no room for complacency, however, as even one serious injury is too many, so this vital work must continue in order for the figures to drop further."
