Payday Loan Sites Blocked By Council

Sites blocked at libraries Sites blocked at libraries

PAYDAY loan websites have been blocked on computers at Barnsley Council's libraries.

The council has decided to restrict access to websites of payday loan firms due to concerns over increasing annual debt among some residents.

"We don't want to promote this sort of lending," said Cllr Jenny Platts.

"We hope instead people will use the range of support and services such as the Credit Union and Citizens' Advice Bureau.

"We know that many people are really struggling to make ends meet, but there are better ways of getting help than by using payday loans."
