Britons with bank accounts in Cyprus face a hit on their finances following a bailout agreement with international creditors that includes a levy on all the country's bank accounts.

Lines formed at many ATMs as people scrambled to pull their money out after word that the £10 billion rescue package Cyprus agreed with its euro area partners and the International Monetary Fund included one-off levy on deposits - an unprecedented step in the eurozone crisis.
