%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%The number of people going insolvent in England and Wales edged up by 2.5% in the first quarter of this year, as experts warned there is still "no light at the end of the tunnel" for many families despite the recovering economy.

Some 24,931 individual insolvencies were recorded over the latest three-month period, which is 2.5% higher than the fourth quarter of 2013 but is still 0.3% down on the same period a year ago.
