Lisa Nandy criticises credit score companies

Lisa Nandy, the Labour MP for Wigan has hit out at credit scoring agencies, suggesting that they are increasing the cost of being poor.

The Labour leadership candidate said that the tools used by such companies are "secretive and prone to error".

Speaking ahead of the Labour leadership hustings in Peterborough on Saturday, Ms Nandy insisted that such agencies must now be reined in.

Voting for the party's next leader will open to Labour members on Monday, with Jeremy Corbyn's successor to be named on April 4.
