Londoners more in debt than those in other parts of the UK

A report by charity StepChange has shown that, of all the regions surveyed, London has the highest level of debt problems. The report, which analysed 15,000 individuals, found the average level of debt for Londoners to be 3.5 per cent higher than those living outside of London, at £12,402. Credit cards, bank loans, overdraft facilities and being in arrears on household bills were all cited as contributory factors in the high level of debt.

The cost of living in London continues to rise and this is clearly having a huge impact on people’s ability to keep on top of their debt.
