Lots of you are getting in touch to talk about banks and bankers , following the £290m ($450m) fine given to Barclays.

An investigation looked into claims that traders manipulated the interest rate at which banks lend to each other.

A number of other big-name banks are believed to be under investigation - and the UK's finance minister George Osborne has raised the possibility of criminal charges against guilty bankers.

With the criticism also levelled at the role of banks in the financial crisis over the last few years, do you trust your bank?

Many of your are asking what banks should be for? One guest on our 1100GMT edition today said there would be "anarchy" without banks - do you agree? Or do you think there could be a viable alternative?
