Famous Names Scrapped

Abbey, Alliance & Leicester (A&L) and Bradford & Bingley are to be scrapped; or at least their names are to be consigned to the dustbin of history.

Santander, the Spanish banking group that owns all three brands, has announced that it will re brand them under the "flame-logo" and Santander name by the end of 2010.

Given that the above names currently exist and function side by side in many highstreets, it is fair to assume that once the re branding has occurred the next step will be staff cuts and office closures.
