A charity in Worcestershire that offers zero-interest loans to people who are struggling financially has expanded into Shropshire.

Tenbury Wells NILS has opened a branch in Ludlow.

The scheme provides an alternative to payday lenders or loan sharks for local people who cannot get credit elsewhere.

BBC Midlands Today's Nadine Towell went to meet a married couple who call the project a "lifeline".
