NatWest and RBS business managers will continue to contact and visit customers affected to see how else we can help them.

Chris Sullivan, CEO Corporate Bank for NatWest and RBS, said: “As the UK's biggest business bank we know cashflow is critical for businesses. Many firms will have taken a real hit to their livelihoods as a result of this prolonged period of adverse weather. The loss of trade or damage to stock from such a storm can mean businesses find themselves in financial trouble. We’re making additional support available because we know how important it is to the local economy and communities to get these businesses operational again.”
