National debt as a percentage of GDP in the UK 1920-2021

Public sector net borrowing amounted to 97.5 percent of gross domestic product in the United Kingdom in February 2021, the highest it has been since the early 1960s. After the end of the Second World War, government borrowing in the UK gradually fell, before a sharp increase is visible in the late 2000s at the time of the global financial crisis.
