Pontins in administration

Pontins, the budget UK holiday park operator, went into administration last night. The firm's banker, Santander, is understood to be owed £40m. So it looks as if the bank has appointed the administrators KPMG. The administrators have a helpline operating from Monday: 0844 576 8481. The camps are expected to continue to trade while a buyer is found.

  2. ROK Construction gone bancrupt
    Pontins gone bancrupt.
    R&S Dryling gone bancrupt.
    As a construction worker, we already know suits look down their noses at us! (just aslong as they don't expect us to look upto them!).

    TWO large constrction companies ruined within a week, why? RBS not lending OUR money to employ US...
    Guys from R&S drylining were told 10:30 Tuesday past, they have no jobs anymore and are not going to be paid the previous fortnights wages, some as much as £3.5k on price work, our building site is like a ghost town and Tuesday was a grim day.
