UK debt reaches record high as government borrowing hits £19.1bn


The UK’s debt has reached a new high as government borrowing hit £19.1bn last month.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the public sector had borrowed more last month than during any other February since 1993.

It means net debt has risen by £333bn since the start of April when the coronavirus lockdowns began, bringing the total to £2.131 trillion.
