#debtday

As you may know, I work for the CCCS (the Consumer Credit Counselling Service).

Today at work we're posting hourly updates of the number of calls we receive, and the total debt reported, as it happens. The numbers are staggering. Remember, this is just one day.

Current status:
9:10am: The first figures are through, with 71 calls from people with money worries, discussing £2,836,939 debt. This equates to around £40,000 debt reported in each call.

update: 10am - 164 calls from people with money worries, discussing £12,406,015 debt
