Second bank to be nationalised in the UK. Royal Bank of Scotland has problems too, but not expected to face potential nationalisation or brought out.

British government is trying to sell Bradford & Bingley to Spain, but it is likely nationalisation will happen later on today.

Nationalisation is expected to cost billions.
