Relaxed lending conditions in the UK and US have led to record levels of borrowing and generated £52bn worth of business in the last eight months, reports The Financial Times.

This has prompted corporate recovery advisors, including PwC, the largest player in the world, to hire up insolvency specialists in the retailing, utilities and telecommunications sectors.
