Former HBOS Chief Executive Sir James Crosby has resigned today as the deputy chairman of the Financial Services Authority. Yesterday our Economics Editor Paul Mason had an exclusive interview with Paul Moore - the former head of group regulatory risk at HBOS. He was a key whistleblower whose evidence before the Treasury Select Committee led to calls for Crosby's resignation. Moore said he was sacked by HBOS after he raised fears that the bank was growing too quickly and putting itself in danger - allegations Sir James denies. We'll be getting Paul Moore's reaction tonight.
