Home of fallen banker attacked

March 26, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Vandals attacked the home of the former head of the Royal Bank of Scotland, smashing windows at the house of the ex-CEO who resigned in disgrace but with an annual pension of about $1.2 million.

Three windows were smashed at Fred Goodwin's sandstone Victorian house in one of Edinburgh's upscale suburbs. The rear window of a black Mercedes-Benz S600 parked in the driveway was also broken.

Goodwin was already the focus of much public anger about bank failures and wider economic problems in Britain. The British government has committed itself to invest $46 billion to prop up the bank, while taking a majority stake in the company.
