Investors in the over 50's bracket will be falling over themselves to take advantage of the latest product update from Leek United BS.

Its already competitive 50 Plus Postal account has seen the rate it pays increase by 0.50% to 3.00% for savers that make fewer than three withdrawals per annum.

For those making four withdrawals or more, a reduced rate of 2.50% will be paid.

Having moved a step further towards the upper echelons of the postal account rankings, this product earns four out five Moneyfacts stars.

Steve Boulton, head of savings, said: "Leek United is happy Moneyfacts has awarded four out of five stars to our 50 Plus Postal account, which we feel is due to the fact that the 3.00% gross/AER rate includes a 0.50% annual bonus interest and not just an introductory bonus."
