The Co-operative Bank has given the green light to savers looking to fix their savings rates with an ethical provider.

Its one year fixed term deposit account paying 2.81% has entered the top ten for its term so should prove popular.

Savers will need to be certain they can commit funds for the full term as early access to the money is not permitted.

One of the market leading rates available on the high street, the product is good news for those without internet access, and fully deserves four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
