Britain's Carillion collapses

Posted online

Britain's Carillion collapsed on Monday following banks' unwillingness to back the construction and services company.

The 200-year-old business employs 43,000 people worldwide, including 20,000 in Britain. Carillion has been forced into compulsory liquidation after costly contract delays and a slump in new business, according to Reuters.
