KPMG director named bankruptcy trustee to ex-UB40 front-man

UB40 LEAD SINGER Alistair Campbell has been made bankrupt with KPMG insolvency director Wendy Wardell appointed his trustee.

Campbell is due to be discharged from bankruptcy on 27 June 2012.

Wardell joined the firm in 1996 and was promoted to director of insolvency in January 2010.

UB40 were embroiled in a legal battle earlier this year where a Birmingham County Court judge gave the green light for tax officials to pursue individual bankruptcy proceedings against the five original members over royalty payments.

Campbell left the group in 2008.


Alistair Campbell told Accountancy Age: “”This is an old story and at this time have no comment to make.”
