The chief executive of Barclays, Jes Staley is set to lose his annual bonus due to an investigation into his conduct in a whistleblowing case.

As well as losing his annual bonus, Staley will also be issued with a formal written reprimand.

Staley defended his move and apologised, he told the Barclays board that he had been trying to protect a colleague who had experienced personal difficulties in the past which he believed to be an unfair attack.
