Britain's highest paid bankers saw their total pay soar by more than a third last year as they landed bonuses worth nearly four times their annual salary.

Figures from the European Banking Authority (EBA) revealed that the UK once more had by far the highest number of bankers earning more than a million euros (£833,000) in the European Union - at 2,714 in 2012.
