A spokesman said the centre is now being run by a new supplier, and staff are undergoing re-training.

This site was operated for us by a third party supplier, Deloitte. Following further investigations, we took immediate action, and in May concluded our contract with Deloitte and moved to a new supplier.

Some of the comments made by trainers to The Times reporter are not endorsed by Lloyds Banking Group and we believe they do not reflect our high training standards or our policies. We believe the comments to be isolated and they are now being addressed.

Following the discovery of these issues, and under the guidance of a new supplier, the employees are currently undergoing re-training in line with our policies and procedures.

To date Lloyds has set aside a total £6.7 billion for PPI payouts, and has paid out more than £4.3 billion to 1.3 million customers.
