Martin Lewis urges firms to go easy on flood victims

'Money Saving Expert' Martin Lewis has warned firms to go easy on flood victims who owe them money.

He suggested small firms should follow the lead of some banks by waiving late fees and allowing victims "repayment holidays."

Lewis told BBC Radio 5 live's Shelagh Fogarty: "Let's all pull together and just give a little bit of easy time for those who are struggling."
