Debt crisis: Moody's downgrade of Britain's banks to hit families
James KirkupMoody’s, a leading international ratings agency, on Thursday night cut its scores for Barclays, Lloyds and Royal Bank of Scotland because of the eurozone crisis.
Senior politicians warned the banks not to use the downgrade as an excuse to charge more for borrowing on the high street.
The downgrade coincided with a warning from the CBI, Britain’s biggest business group, that the fragile economic recovery was at risk of being “choked off by a lack of finance”.
