    Default Phone Bill: You owe us €11,721,000,000,000,000

    A woman in south-west France, who received a telephone bill of nearly 12 quadrillion euros. Solenne San Jose, from Pessac outside Bordeaux, said she received a huge shock when she opened the bill for €11,721,000,000,000,000 (£9.4qn).

    This is nearly 6,000 times France's annual economic output.

    She had requested her account be closed after losing her job last month. The former teaching assistant said she "almost had a heart attack. There were so many zeroes I couldn't even work out how much it was". The phone company, Bouygues Telecom, initially told her there was nothing they could do to amend the computer-generated statement and later offered to set up instalments to pay off the bill.
