The UK's second biggest major construction company, Carillion failed to secure any kind of refinancing deal with its lenders or the government to cope with its huge debts and major losses on big contracts.
Britain's government is under pressure to explain why ministers awarded construction company Carillion 1.3 billion pounds of new contracts after it was known to be in financial difficulty.
The failure of Britain's second biggest construction firm puts thousands of jobs at risk in the United Kingdom and overseas.
The company has 43,000 staff worldwide, including 20,000 in the UK.
Among dozens of contracts with industries like rail, education and the NHS, Carillion also works in numerous UK's prisons.
Thousands of jobs are in jeopardy, and the government will now be required to provide funding for Carillion to continue its work on public sector contracts. This will involve either transferring Carillion hard FM staff to a newly contracted company or to our own internal staff agency, as an interim measure to ensure work can continue and staff can continue to be paid.
Vince Cable has rejected suggestions the company should benefit from a Government bailout to avoid major public sector projects being plunged into chaos.
