Organised by the Federation of Small Businesses, the forum gives businesses the chance to quiz the major high street banks about their concerns.

It comes after the banking sector continued to be mired in scandal last year, with Lloyds bank fined £28m for serious failings, while the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) came under fire amid allegations of forcing business into closure so it could profit from their assets.
