Burnley’s Dave Fishwick likes to take on the big boys – and he has a habit of coming out on top.

His revolutionary bank in Burnley certainly ruffled a few feathers in the City of London and put the town on the fiscal map.

His latest venture, Loan Ranger, cast a disparaging eye on the pay day loan companies and the ridiculous interest rates they inflict. Since Dave’s programme aired the Government has adopted many of his ideas on the whole issue of loan companies and what they can charge.

His success in the Scottish BAFTAs on Sunday is no more than this cash crusader deserves. Well done mate!
