Lloyds widens HBOS review after pressure from campaigners

High Street bank Lloyds has widened a compensation scheme for victims of the HBOS Reading fraud after pressure from campaigners.

The £245m scandal saw a gang of bankers wreck small businesses and spend the proceeds on prostitutes, holidays and luxury goods.

Lloyds, which bought HBOS in 2009, is acting after its original scheme was found to be ‘neither fair nor reasonable’.
