The Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) fiasco that hit major banks' profits this year is set to continue after Barclays Bank said they were expecting complaints about loan insurance to continue rising after a 93% increase in the first half of the year.

Having lost their legal battle on the PPI ruling Barclays have seen a rise in new complaints, as well as being forced to set aside £1 billion to cover the costs of existing claims.

In general Barclays reported a 14% decrease in complaints about their services for the opening six months of the year, however those concerning PPI were up from 38,000 for the same period in 2010, to 73,000.
