The findings reflect a high percentage of people who are currently in debt to lenders, of which some are struggling to pay back.

According to consumer group Which, 79 percent of people are currently using some form of credit. The results show that around 38.5 million adults owe some form of debt from mortgage to credit cards. The study also found that half of people who used a payday loan or dipped into an unauthorised overdraft said they had been rejected for credit in the past year.

Which Executive Director, Richard Lloyd added, ‘It’s time for a crackdown on irresponsible lending, especially for high cost lenders who are exploiting consumers struggling in the current economic climate.’
