Taxpayer-backed Lloyds Banking Group handed 25 of its staff £1m or more in pay and bonuses last year, its annual report showed.
The figure, which includes rewards for five staff who picked up in excess of £2m, means there were 769 bank staff in the £1m-plus pay bracket at the five big high street firms last year.
Chief executive Antonio Horta-Osorio was paid £2.5m in pay and deferred bonuses last year.
