Branson vows to make impact after Rock buy

Sir Richard Branson has vowed to improve British banking for customers during his visit to the first newly re-branded branch of Virgin Money.

The tycoon's firm took over nationalised Northern Rock in a £747m deal and he toasted staff and customers in the lender's Newcastle heartland. Sir Richard said The Virgin Group has always made things better for customers and wants to do it for banking.
