Watchdog cracks down on 'short-selling'

Former top City regulator Sir Hector Sants has resigned from his post in charge of compliance at Barclays after being signed off work last month with stress and exhaustion.

Barclays said Sir Hector, who was on sick leave until the end of the year, stepped down after deciding he would not be able to return to work in the near term.
