High street banking giant Santander has revealed it paid 19 staff more than £1 million last year and increased its bonus pool by 14% to £150 million despite another year of hefty provisions for mis-selling scandals.

The Spanish-owned group said UK boss Ana Botin was the highest-paid executive, receiving £4 million in salary and bonuses, including a 24% rise in salary to £2.1 million last year and a £1.8 million cash-and-shares bonus.
