Scotland's largest building society is to be put on the market by the government after it effectively collapsed with a massive loss.
It was hoped the Dunfermline could continue with a government bailout of between £60m to £100m.
But the regulators have decided it is no longer viable, with a £26m loss expected to be announced next week.
The tri-partite regulators - the Bank of England, the Financial Services Authority (FSA) and the UK government - have forced the sale of the Dunfermline, after it emerged a multi-million pound loss was expected and further problems were likely to emerge.
