Barclays has announced its adjusted pre-tax profits fell by 17% over the first six months of 2013 to £3.59 billion as the bank counted the cost of a group-wide restructure launched in the wake of its Libor rate-rigging settlement last year.
In new interim results, the bank has also set aside £2 billion for customer mis-selling, including £1.35 billion for payment protection insurance.
The group added set prices were at 185p for new ordinary shares.
