This is the biggest news about A4e ever. Read the full story here in the Financial Times.
"Emma Harrison, the prime minister’s former “families champion”, has appointed Deloitte to advise on a sale or break-up of the business, which has been struggling since being hit by a series of fraud claims."
Nobody is saying anything else very much, except that Harrison, with an 87% share in the company, is "weighing her options" and that various outfits might be interested in buying.
That's all we know for now, and it's late, so a more considered post tomorrow.
