Net consumer credit plunged in September to stg0.785bn, below the 
six-month average of stg1.2bn. Driving the fall from August's stg1.215bn 
reading was a sharp fall in new borrowing for car finance, in line with 
the weak car registration numbers in September. This facilitated a  
stg0.4bn drop in other loans and advances. Mortgage approvals also 
fell from Aug's seven-month high to 65,269. However, the reading 
remains above the drop in July to 65,046. For the fourth month in a row, 
the rate on consumer overdrafts remained at its highest since Oct 2017.
