Share this article

The chief executive of Lloyds Banking Group has been ordered to stand down due to stress.

Doctors have told Antonio Horta-Osório to take six to eight weeks’ leave from the semi-nationalised banking giant, which has a main office at Trinity Road, Halifax, and employs more than 6,000 people in Calderdale.

The 47-year-old joined Lloyds from rival Santander in March and set about radically restructuring, with plans to cut 15,000 jobs and sell off 630 retail bank branches.
