The cost of measures to support the economy during the coronavirus pandemic has pushed government borrowing to the highest level since the end of World War Two.
Government borrowing – the difference between spending and tax income – hit £303.1bn in the year to March, the Office for National Statistics said.
Compared to the previous year, borrowing is nearly £250bn higher.
Measures such as furlough payments have hit government finances hard.
Borrowing hit £28bn in March alone – a record high for that month.
