Patrick Jenkins discusses what has emerged from the case so far with Caroline Binham and Jane Croft.

Contributors: Suzanne Blumsom, executive editor, Patrick Jenkins, financial editor, Caroline Binham, financial regulation correspondent and Jane Croft, law courts correspondent. Producer: Fiona Symon
