The sudden collapse of two popular digital coins in early May shocked investors and wiped $400bn (£318bn) from the value of many other cryptocurrencies, including the biggest, Bitcoin. All over the world, people who lost their life savings are now appealing for help. One desperate man was even arrested after visiting the home of the elusive businessman at the centre of the “cryptocrash”. He told BBC News his life was in tatters.
He acknowledged both he and the prime minister wanted a "low-tax, high-growth economy, and world class public services", but Mr Sunak said this could only be "responsibly delivered if we are prepared to work hard, make sacrifices and take difficult decisions".
