The dangers of borrowing money from loan sharks will be explained at an exhibition in Leicester this week.

Today, a mural on the theme, produced as part of an urban art workshop, will be unveiled at the Cort Crescent Community Centre.

It shows a shark and was designed by local youngsters.

"This campaign will highlight what people should look out for when considering borrowing money, and how to report it if they have fallen prey to loan sharks."
