Inflation rate rises ‘leading to more debts’

Rises in the rate of inflation across the country are prompting many people to take on more debt, it has been claimed.

According to Chris Tapp, director of the Credit Action charity, consumers are being obliged to spend more on their everyday living expenses and as a result are turning more often to credit card debt to fund their outgoings.
