Portman members eye up windfall
Members of the Portman building society have been told that they will receive a bonus payment, should a merger with Nationwide get the go ahead.

About 1.2 million Portman members stand to receive a bonus of between 200 and 1,000.

Portman members will vote on whether to approve the merger at the society's AGM on 23 April.

Nationwide is currently the UK's largest building society, while Portman is the third-biggest.
