Anger over Northern Rock bonuses

There's anger in the UK at Northern Rock's decision to pay "dedication" bonuses to its staff.
Most employees will receive 10% of their salaries.
The bank was bailed out with £26bn of British taxpayers' money last year.
Critics say it is outrageous a nationalised bank should dish out cash simply for workers doing their jobs.
