    In the UK/In UK

    From one of the websites:

    About us: “…but we work in all UK”

    Is it alright to leave out the definite article here?

    I could understand if it was a breaking news saying “Five for Mars in UK”, or “UK” served as adjective, like: “UK citizens…”. I am not so sure about the above website.
    I was thinking this could be one of the exceptions I am not aware of?

    Do the following sound good?

    1. We work in all the UK.
    2. We work in all of the UK.
    3. We provide our services in all parts of the UK.
    4. We offer our services across the UK.
    5. We work across the whole of the UK.

    Re: In the UK/In UK

    It's best to say:

    We provide our services in all parts of the UK.

    We offer our services across the UK.
    We work across the whole of the UK.

    or,
    We work/offer our services all over the UK.

    " ... in all UK" is incorrect.
