Co-op Bank fails Bank of England stress test

The Co-operative Bank has failed a "stress test" set by the Bank of England to assess whether UK lenders could withstand another financial crisis.

Two more, Lloyds Banking Group and Royal Bank of Scotland, were found to be at risk should there be a "severe economic downturn".

Five others passed the test.

Simon Gompertz reports.
