A single father shared a crying selfie moments before he took his life after he was left with just £4.61 in his bank account.
Phillip Herron, 34, quit his job in a factory to look after his three children. Sadly, he fell behind with rent and trying to feed and clothe his children. He ended up £20,000 in debt, including payday loans with 1,000 per cent interest. .

.. Waiting for a payment from Universal Credit was the last straw and the single dad killed himself.

Minutes before he took his own life on March 18, he posted a picture of himself crying in his car.
Reacting to his death, his mother, Sheena Derbyshire, 54, told the Mirror it was dangerous to make families wait so long for payments when they are already desperate. .

She said: "In his suicide note he said his family would be better off if he wasn’t there anymore. "He was a single dad. He was responsible. He always had money before and the kids had the best of everything." .

Sheena didn't discover how dire Phillip’s financial situation was until weeks after his death. Letters at his home detailed how much debt he was in, and he had also been served an eviction notice.
