A LEADING South Yorkshire insolvency firm is warning heavy Christmas spending could be the last straw for hard-up families.

Paul Moorhead, of Moorhead Savage, is launching a special Christmas debt helpline to provide support for people who fear what the New Year might bring.

“Job insecurity is rising, pay freezes are the norm and overtime is being cut at the same time the cost of living is rising, so it is easy to see why some people think they should at least enjoy Christmas while they can,” said Paul.

“But taking on increasing unsecured debt simply to ensure a good Christmas is never a good idea.”

The helpline is open through Christmas and the New Year on 01709 331 300.
