The company said today that it has submitted remedial plans to the monoline insurers of the Series A and Series B Bonds, Ambac Assurance UK Limited and Assured Guaranty (UK) PLC.

It concluded, whilst good progress has been made to remedy the situation the revised arrangements are not complete, and the company has requested, and the Monolines have agreed to, an extension to that cure period to 30 April 2018.

The company said it will continue to provide further updates as appropriate.
