On Wednesday 18 February Money Box Live with Paul Lewis was broadcast from the Trafford Centre in Manchester, live at 1502 GMT.

The programme was part of the BBC's Money Matters Roadshow - when teams of financial experts were on hand from early morning at the centre to offer advice.

Other BBC programmes who were broadcasting at the centre included BBC Radio 4's You and Yours, and BBC 2's Working lunch.

There is plenty of financial belt tightening going on at the moment.

So for expert advice Money Box's Paul Lewis and his guests answered questions on money matters like savings, pensions, coping with debt, mortgages or claiming benefits.

The expert panel included:

  • Ray Boulger of John Charcol
  • Beccy Boden-Wilks of National Debtline
  • Graham Hooper of Bestinvest
  • Sandie Lock of Citizens Advice
  • John Whiting from the Chartered Institute of Taxation
  • Malcolm McLean from the Pensions Advisory Service
