A group of Swansea mums have been persistently harassed and intimidated by doorstep lenders peering through their windows and even in one instance scaling the front of the house. They decided to do something about it. Cathy Newman hears their story.

 

Almost two years ago, Serai Hann had hit rock bottom. She'd split up with her partner, was struggling to manage their two young children on her own - and to top it all, she'd taken out three "payday" loans and had no idea how she was going to repay them. Now 23-year-old Ms Hann has turned her life around, teaming up with a bunch of other mums in Swansea to mount a campaign against irresponsible doorstep lenders. She and her fellow campaigners are a new breed of grassroots activists who would never in their life have dreamt of getting involved in politics, but have found a way of making politics work for them.

 

"I always thought politics was a load of rubbish," she tells me. "I've never been remotely interested. I've always thought they all lie."

 

But with the help of the community activist group Movement for Change, Ms Hann has been able to get a taste of political power.
