Nearly a quarter of bankers fear they will not receive a bonus this year as regulatory pressures weigh on pay in the scandal-hit financial services sector.

A survey of more than a thousand City workers by recruitment firm Astbury Marsden reveals the percentage of them expecting a "donought", or zero bonus, in the current pay season has doubled to 22% compared with the same time last year.
