Economic Secretary to the Treasury Sajid Javid has told MPs it's reassuring that RBS boss Stephen Hester is staying on until a successor is found - the markets seem to think it would have been more reassuring if he was not leaving!
ITN's Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship explains why Stephen Hester's time ran out at RBS.
The man in charge of steering RBS back into private hands - retrieving £45bn of taxpayers cash in the process - is to leave the bank.
RBS chief executive Stephen Hester has announced he is to leave the taxpayer owned bank. But was he forced out or did he jump.
