The Co-operative Group should adopt a much smaller board and focus on being profitable in order to survive, according to a major review of the 150-year-old organisation.
The report by former City Minister Lord Myners says the group's current board is "manifestly dysfunctional".
He recommends replacing it with a smaller board made up of people with business experience.
