Hello #Plymouth – Hello #Plymouth – There's more illegal money lending in our city, trapping people in a cycle of debt. People can find themselves getting into debt and loaning more money to get themselves out of it. And illegal lenders – loan sharks – will charge huge amounts of interests, keeping people in constant debt with them. You should never loan money from an illegal lender. That’s why I went down to the unveiling of a fantastic new mural, at North Cross subway, on the way to the train station from the city centre. It warns people about the dangers of using loan sharks, and gives details on how to get support. The great thing is, it was paid for by funds that were seized from illegal loan sharks. If you think you might be lending money from a loan shark, visit the website www.stoploansharks.co.uk for help and advice. Or call the Citizen’s Advice Loan Shark helpline on 0300 555 2222. Don’t get bitten by a loan shark.Let me know what you think Plymouth

• A new mural in Plymouth unveiled aiming at preventing illegal lending
• The painting is located at the North Cross subway
• Luke: “We should only have sharks in the National Marine Aquarium, not loan sharks in our community.”
Luke attended the unveiling of a fantastic new mural in Plymouth city centre today. The mural, at the North Cross subway, is aimed at stopping illegal lending and loan sharks and, has been paid for from the seizure of the proceeds of crime.
Luke Pollard, running for re-election as MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, said:
“This is a fantastic initiative. Unfortunately, too many people in our society are getting caught in a cycle of debt because of the increase in illegal lending in our city.
The great thing about the mural is that there are details on it that help people if they are affected by illegal lending. There are a phone number and a website included. We should only have sharks in the National Marine Aquarium, not loan sharks in our community.”
