Personal bankruptcies are up in Wigan - 29 per cent higher than the same period last year, in fact.
More people are voluntarily going bankrupt as a means of righting off their personal debts and begin again.
So, not only are businesses battling to stay afloat during the tail end of the recession but many of their (ex) workers are suffering too.
