Norwich & Peterborough Building Society has unveiled a new branch-based instant access savings account sure to turn savers' heads.

An underlying rate of 1% is guaranteed to increase in line with any movement in the base rate until the end of 2011, while a bonus of 1.25% will be paid if the account still remains open after one year.

Taken together, the overall rate of 2.25% is amongst the best currently available in the instant access market.

That there are no limits to the amount of withdrawals or deposits which can be made is also a positive.

With an offshore version of the account also available, four out of five Moneyfacts stars are richly deserved.
