UK borrowing hits highest December level on record

unxhukceoi9d7rmc8wbz.jpg?profile=RESIZE_400xUK government borrowing hit £34.1bn last month, the highest December figure on record, as the cost of pandemic support weighed on the economy.

It was also the third-highest borrowing figure in any month since records began in 1993, the Office for National Statistics said. 

The figures underline Chancellor Rishi Sunak's problems as he prepares his March Budget.
