  1. Barclays closing in Newquay

    Barclays on Bank Street in Newquay, Cornwall, is closing - leaving no banks on the high street.

    The closure comes after Lloyds closed its doors there five years ago.

    Barclays' closure in Newquay, due in October, follows the bank's boss saying in April its long-term "location strategy" would be reviewed with 70,000 staff members worldwide working from home due to the coronavirus lockdown.

    He said at the time having thousands of bank workers in big, expensive city offices "may be a thing of the past".

  2. Barclays offers help to firms affected by coronavirus

    Barclays has announced support measures for business customers who have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

    It is offering 12-month capital repayment holidays on existing loans over £25,000, and will also offer extended or new overdraft facilities.

    "Our network of relationship managers has been reaching out to SMEs across the UK to see if they require additional support during this time, as we do regularly when we see any events which may have an impact on our clients," said Ian Rand, chief executive of Barclays Business Banking.

    "Barclays is ready to help, whether that's with managing cash-flow or any other support, and we encourage any customer who needs guidance to call us or contact their relationship manager."

  3. The inside story of the Barclays trial

    The acquittal of three former Barclays executives is the only time a jury has ruled on criminal allegations against senior bankers for events in the 2008 financial crisis.

    The senior executives in this trial, which started in October - Roger Jenkins, 64, Tom Kalaris, 64 and Richard Boath, 61 - were not the top bosses of Barclays.

    Instead, they were between one and four ranks down from the board of directors in the bank's structure.

    The allegations centred on a giant fundraising exercise in 2008 which enabled Barclays to escape the nationalisation forced on its competitors, RBS, Lloyds and HBOS.
