Banco Santander SA's SAN.MC +2.97% U.K. unit lost about £200 million of deposits on Friday as jittery customers worried about the lender's financial health, according to a senior executive. The deposit outflows on Friday, amounting to about $316 million, represented roughly 0.2% of Santander UK PLC's total customer deposits, said Steve Pateman, Santander's head of U.K. banking. Those deposits stood at £120.1 billion at the end of last year. "We had a modestly negative day," Mr. Pateman said. Santander UK has spent the day scrambling to soothe anxious depositors. Customers apparently are nervous about the British bank's vulnerability to Spain and its fragile banking system, and were further rattled by news coverage of a downgrade of the bank's credit rating late Thursday by Moody's Investors Service.
