Found this on BBC News site about Bank Of Scotland and this one on the Belfast Telegraph site in relation to what has been said.

some big decisions need to be made then.

in our case the stress just lifted away once we went bankrupt - no banks, credit cards etc ringing and writing endlessly..

these things we stress and fight for are only bricks and mortar or material possessons.

preserve your health and well being as best you can with minimum stress.

you can usually hold off banks etc with minimum payments for so long - we were down to a $1 on everything - but ultimately a decision as to be made but it gives you time to come to terms with it and decide what you want to do. Also to make plans and do some fact finding.

getting on council registar is a good start and looking around at private landlords 0 alot dont take on benefits, or you may need to find someone to be a guarantor - the council has a scheme for this as well in some areas - especially if you dont work like us.

even going bankcrupt costs so dont leave anyting too late if you need to save up some money - do this by reducing payments to a minimum.

moneysavingexpert.com has great info on all this, closing bank accounts & getting new ones ets.
