Samantha Carr spoke of her grief after he father killed himself when he racked up £18,000 debt through payday loan firms.
A new crackdown on loans costs aims to protect customers, yet will put 30 per cent of lenders out of business and be cheered by loan sharks.
With the average London house now £400,000 first-time buyers are struggling to get on the property ladder. Read some of their stories here.
The Financial Conduct Authority's cap on the interest charges and fees set by payday lenders will ensure customers will never be hit with loan costs higher than the amount borrowed.
ITV News Business Editor Joel Hills has tweeted the FCA's key proposals:
FCA caps interest charges on payday loans and default fees. Overall cost of payday loan "will never exceed 100% of amount borrowed".
FCA says cost of borrowing a £100 payday loan for 30 days (repaid on time) will never exceed £24. It's currently £30.
FCA says default charges "cannot exceed £15". Wonga's was £30 but was recently lowered to £20.
The Financial Conduct Authority has announced plans to impose a price cap on payday lenders from January 2015.
The FCA confirmed earlier this year it planned to cap the total cost of credit for all payday loan firms from early next year following pressure from the Government.
Restrictions on the amount payday loan companies can charge on interest are expected to be announced by the industry watchdog later today.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will impose severe restrictions on the amount of interest which each company can charge, as concerns over the excessive cost of fast credit spiral.
FCA chief executive Martin Wheatley will set out details of an industry consultation which will lead to a cap being in place by the start of next year.
Payday loans have proved a controversial business model, with many accusing companies like Wonga of "legal loan sharking" and exploiting those struggling to make ends meet.
Over three quarters of tenants have never switched electricity provider, according to the latest data from Ofgem's 2014 Consumer Engagement Survey.
The poll revealed one in five tenants did not know they could change energy providers in what the industry regulator dubbed the "sheer lack of awareness" of renters' rights to shop around.
A further 74% admitted to never switching to another gas provider.
Ofgem said that although renters often thought they had to accept the energy suppliers already in place when they moved in, this was very rarely the case.
London's house prices are growing at the fastest pace since the late 1980s, according to property economist Matthew Pointon.
Mr Pointon, who works for Capital Economics, said mortgage approvals have now been falling for four months in a row.
He warned: "The risk of a damaging house price correction at some point in the next few years is growing."
Despite being at an all-time high experts predict a further four to five per cent rise in house prices by the end of 2014.
Howard Archer, chief UK and European economist for IHS Global Insight, said this could increase to seven per cent in 2015.
He said: "At the moment, house prices still look more likely than not to see clear increases over the coming months, although it is looking increasingly probable that there will be some easing back in house price gains from the recent very strong increases."
