A WEEK of action is being launched by Ipswich Borough Council to crackdown on loan sharks preying on the vulnerable in south east Ipswich.

Action groups will take place at the Salvation Army Priory Centre on January 30 from 1pm to 3pm, February 1 from 1pm to 3pm and Feburary 2 from 10am to noon.

Councillor Keith Rawlingson, chair of the council’s South-East Area Committee, said: “Anyone who has been the victim of a loan shark should report this in confidence; they can get help and action can be taken against the loan shark.”
