Philip Green's Arcadia, home to some of the biggest brands in British retail, said it was working on a number of options to secure its future. Sky News reported it risked collapsing in days, threatening 15,000 jobs. In what could be the biggest British corporate collapse of the global crisis so far, Sky said Arcadia was preparing to appoint administrators from Deloitte as soon as Monday. Arcadia owns brands such as Topshop and Dorothy Perkins, trading from over 500 stores up and down the country. The company said in a statement it had been working on a number of contingency options to secure the group's future, adding it expected its stores to reopen next week when the government's latest restrictions ease. Sky cited one retail industry figure as saying Arcadia's collapse had become inevitable after talks with a number of lenders about an emergency £30 million loan ended without success.

The Duchess of Cambridge has called for early years development to be “on par with the other great social challenges of our time” as she warned that change might not be fully felt for a generation. In a keynote speech delivered at a Royal Foundation forum, the Duchess revealed that her own interest in early childhood did not stem from becoming a mother, insisting that being a parent was “not a prerequisite for understanding the importance of the early years.” She warned that waiting until parenthood before showing an interest was too late. The Duchess today unveiled the findings of the biggest ever UK study on the early years, which reveals that only a quarter of parents understand the critical importance of early childhood. The report, commissioned by the Royal Foundation, concludes that parents need better support and access to information from society as a whole.
