Yorkshire Bank has increased the rate paid on its 5 Year Deposit and a Child Savings Bond products.

The long term bond now pays 5.00% yearly (+ 0.25%) and 5.52% on maturity (+ 0.30%).

The Child Savings Bond has been increased by 0.25% to 5.00%. Monthly options have also been increased and all other terms and conditions remain unchanged.

At 5.00%, the children's product has returned to a market leading position, while the five year bond sits just below the best rates in its field.

The products, both of which are also available from Clydesdale Bank, have been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
