"Average household debt in the UK (excluding mortgages) was £5,978 in May. This is up from a revised £5,966 in April"
According to http://www.creditaction.org.uk/helpful-resources/debt-statistics.html and can't find the real source but some tabloids state "£3500 to £4500 of debt".
Just wondered how true this really is.
I've just paid (luckily) back £4500 on a credit card last night, before the interest free period ended and was told that was nothing by my peers with new cars etc.
Debt free myself.
