Employment question:

I have a six month notice period in my employment contract including a clause preventing me working for a competitor. The company I work for has been struggling finicially for some months and as a result I have found another job and resigned. I was very happy in my job and didn't want to leave. However the lack of finacial security for my family has forced me to seek something more secure. I haven't been paid late every month since May. Money has been taken from my salary and not paid to my pension provider for several months. Senior mangment has provided either no information, or misleading information, and at times dishonest information as to the finacial situation, ie when things will be paid etc. I feel the relationship with my employer, and potentially my employment contract, had broken down. Would I be within my rights to leave sooner than my 6 month notice period?
