Lloyds Banking Group has revealed that is has set aside an additional £750 million to compensate customers who were mis-sold payment protection insurance (PPI).
The group has already reserved £8 billion to cover PPI costs – the greatest amount of any bank in the UK.
The news comes as Lloyds unveiled its latest financial results showing that underlying profit increased by 136% to £4,426 million in the first nine months of this year.
Additionally, statutory profit before tax rose to £1,694 million, which compares to a loss of £607 million in the first nine months of 2012.
"The third quarter was an especially significant one for the Group. We returned the TSB bank to the high street and launched a rebranded, revitalised Lloyds Bank," said Lloyds chief executive António Horta-Osório.
"Our strategic plan continues to deliver and customers are increasingly seeing the benefits. At the same time we are creating a low cost, low risk differentiated business, resulting in better profitability and returns despite further legacy charges."
