Are payday lenders targeting children with their ad campaigns?


Ed Miliband says his party will ban payday lenders from advertising during children's TV programmes if they win the next general election.

The Labour leader said the firms "target" youngsters to put pressure on them to "pester their parents". He was scathing of the "cartoon characters, trendy puppets or cute plasticine figures" that controversial companies such as Wonga have been known to deploy in their commercials. Stephen has been talking about this over the weekend and spoke to journalist and mother of 4 Angela Epstein.
