With less than a week to go until the 31 January Self-Assessment deadline, HMRC has provided a bit of light relief by posting some of the weird and wonderful excuses from people who have missed the deadline in the past.

 

One late filing Brit tried to blame his mother in law, another tried to blame a junior member of staff and one even blamed the postbox.
