Deal between RBS and Santander could be called off

I am hearing the Royal Bank of Scotland may call off the deal to sell branches to Santander - it has already been hit by delays. I understand joining up IT was a big problem.

Statements from RBS and Santander are imminent - so if this deal has not come off, what happens to those RBS branches that were up for sale?
