Derry personal debt hits 7m

Money, cards and bills

Personal debt in Londonderry is believed to have reached £7m, according to the latest figures from the Citizen's Advice Bureau (CAB).

The manager of the CAB, Jackie Gallagher, said it is the highest branch figure across Northern Ireland.

Individual debts range from £1,000 to £100,000.

"Our city is in dire straits," said Ms Gallagher. "This is the worst I've seen since I started with the CAB twenty years ago."
