Killed by My Debt

Docudrama about 19-year-old Jerome Rogers, who found himself under a crushing debt and who eventually took his own life as a consequence.

The story of Jerome Rogers, a popular 19-year-old from a council estate, who in January 2015, finally got what he had been working for - a new motorbike and his first real job as a courier. But when two £65 traffic fines rose to over £1,000, bailiffs became involved. Some weeks his take-home pay in his zero-hours job was as low as £12, and under the pressure of his debt, Jerome took his own life.
