Cheshire Building Society has made a change for the better to its fixed rate savings accounts.

Its One Year Fixed Rate ISA now pays 3.20%, improving its standing in the short term fixed rate ISA market.

Early access to funds and transfers out are allowed after 60 days, albeit on the closure of the account and the loss of 60 days' interest.

A similar ISA deal is also available through Dunfermline Building Society.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
