Lloyds TSB halts paid-for accounts

Lloyds TSB is temporarily pulling the plug on sales of its paid-for current accounts amid a clampdown on the industry by the City regulator.

The banking giant charges up to £300 a year for the accounts, which include add-ons such as travel and mobile phone insurance and car breakdown cover. The change takes effect from January 1.
