Engineers are trying to fix a massive computer failure at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) that has caused chaos in the benefits system.  More than three-quarters of its staff could not access payment processing systems on Monday after an update to desk-top computers went wrong. ...
About 80% of the DWP's network crashed on Monday and technical experts from Microsoft and the computer firm EDS have been working around the clock to find the fault.
Meanwhile staff were forced to communicate by fax because the e-mail system broke down.
Oops.
