Responding to today's record £117 million fine over its handling of PPI complaints, Lloyds Banking Group said that it takes responsibility for its mistakes and is looking to rebuild trust with customers.
We are trying to get it right for our customers and to rebuild trust. But we do not get everything right.
That means when we make mistakes, we will take responsibility for them.
This is what we have done here.
The group said it has launched a programme to re-review or automatically uphold around 1.2 million PPI complaints.
It has also set aside £710 million to cover any redress due to affected customers, who are being contacted directly.
The group said that following its review, 90% of customers received payment and the remainder will be completed by the end of June.
