Unilad viral publisher goes into administration

The firm that owns viral news website Unilad has gone into administration, putting hundreds of jobs at risk.
Bentley Harrington has debts of £6.5m, including owing £1.5m to the UK taxman.
The Unilad Facebook account has 39 million followers and posts viral videos and news stories.
Unilad, which has offices in London and Manchester, was founded in 2010. It was shut down in 2012, but relaunched in 2014 under new owners Liam Harrington and Sam Bentley.
It was named as one of Facebook's most popular pages last year.
Manchester-based administrators Leonard Curtis Business Rescue and Recovery say they are "seeking offers for the business in order to preserve jobs and maximise the return to creditors".
