The former chairman of the Co-op Bank, Paul Flowers, has been charged with possessing drugs and will appear before magistrates in May.

Mr Flowers was arrested in November following newspaper allegations that he was involved in a drug deal.

He had stepped down from the Co-op six months earlier over concerns about his expenses. He also resigned as a Methodist Church minister days before his arrest.

Danny Savage reports.
