PMQs: Cameron on Paul Flowers and Co-Op Bank inquiry

The prime minister said the chancellor is talking to regulators looking at the best way to hold an inquiry into the Co-Op Bank after Paul Flowers stood down when drug and porn claims emerged.

He said the "first priority is to safeguarded this bank" without using taxpayers' money, and anyone with information should "stand up and provide it to the authorities".

Mr Cameron was responding to Tory MP Steve Brine who asked about the "nightmare" at the bank, and spoke of his "disbelief" that Mr Flowers had become chairman.
