Troubled bank the Co-operative Group has said 2013 was probably its worst ever in its 150 year history.

Consequently the bank has launched a nationwide poll to canvass people for their opinions on its future.

Last April, the mutual pulled out of a deal to purchase 632 Lloyds Banking Group branches.  A short time later, a £1.5bn black hole was discovered in the Co-op’s banking division.

The rescue plan then needed to save the bank led to 70{06aeb1921e0b802d2bd9c766bc98fb11cc6a46c2b0593ed9c88a0e29cf417a34} of the business being sold to private investors.  The online survey will be open to customers until 24th March.
