UK Insolvency Service goes bust

Insolvency ServiceThe UK government department that looks after and advises insolvency has got a problem itself today. Its IT system is bust.

The department said it “is experiencing a problem with its IT system and email”. Its phones are working, the department said in a statement.

But at the time of writing this, its web site appears to be still functioning. The department said it apologised for the glitch and is working to fix the problem.

The department didn’t say what the nature of the problem is. Or was.
