Bank charges: Expert offers tips for those with debt problems

People experiencing bank charges may be interested in some expert advice on how to deal with debt problems.

Paul Crayston, media officer for the Money Advice Trust, a charity formed in 1991 to increase the quality and availability of free, independent money advice in the UK, claims that consumers with debt problems should create a personal budget sheet.

He said: "Everyone needs to have a thorough personal budget sheet or family budget sheet which means they understand ... exactly how much money is coming in and how much money is coming out every month.

"And they can then look at ways to start saving and increase the amount of money coming in."

This, he claims, will help people work out where they can cut back, such as spending less on clothes or utilities.

Mr Crayston also offered some tips on what people with debt should avoid doing.

He said they should seek out advice and not "bury their head in the sand".
