Ministers order bank rate review after Barclays fine

An independent review of the workings of the Libor inter-bank lending rate has been announced by the government in the wake of the Barclays fine.

Barclays was fined £290m ($450m) for attempting to manipulate the Libor, and other banks are being investigated.

Labour leader Ed Miliband has called for a public inquiry into the customs and practices of the banking industry.
