The article said that no decisions had yet been taken about the precise structure of the plan to reclaim bonuses previously awarded to staff, but alleged that if the RBS board gave the new proposal the go-ahead, it would mean a larger number of the bank's employees having their bonuses docked than was previously thought.

ShareCast contacted the RBS press office and a spokeswoman said that no decisions had been taken and declined to comment further.

RBS' share price was down 0.52% to 341.60p at 13:49 on Friday.
