A crackdown on payday lenders could result in the industry disappearing in three years’ time, it has been claimed.

The number of payday loans taken out in the three months to the end of September fell by 37 per cent to 807,723, according to analysis of Financial Conduct Authority data by Wagestream, a financial technology start-up.
