Kettering is one of the nation’s most improved towns for the number of insolvencies, according to new statistics.
Data company Experian places Kettering fourth on its list of most improved towns, with the number of insolvencies dramatically dropping from 16 per 10,000 households to just 8.
The only towns showing better improvement rates were Hamilton in Scotland, Washington in the north east, and Skipton in Yorkshire.
Experian’s head of consumer affairs James Jones said: “It’s encouraging see that the number of people facing personal insolvency has dropped in Kettering, which is a shining example for others affected to know that it is entirely possible to recover after a period of financial hardship.
“Becoming insolvent is not the end of the road, and with patience and the right guidance it is possible to regain control of your finances and rebuild a positive credit rating.”
