Peston confronts his critics

The BBC's Business Editor Robert Peston broke the story of Northern Rock's descent into crisis and has been blamed for causing the subsequent run on the bank.

On a recent trip to the bank's home city of Newcastle he was confronted by Doreen and Denis Shannon who lost 60,000 from shares in Northern Rock and with it their retirement savings.

Watch Peston Heads To Newcastle on Newsnight on Wednesday, 18 February, 2009 at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
