Depositors want CEO Adam Applecart sent packing and the bank's books handed over to the Serious & Disorganised Crime Squad at the Met.

"We think there's something horrible hiding under all that smarm and rhetoric," Dave Nutkins from Sedgefield said today.

"Perhaps that dodgy Lord Levy is somehow responsible for some of this mess?"
