Danske Bank in Northern Ireland has reported pre-tax profits of £45m.

The company announced its results for the first six months of 2014 on Thursday.

It said profit before impairments was up 49% and total income was up 14% to £109m.

The pre-tax profit of £45m compares to a loss of almost £1m during the same period last year.

Danske Bank UK CEO Gerry Mallon said: "The underlying performance of the business continues to significantly improve, while at the same time impairments continue to fall."

He added that nine out of every ten mortgage applications have been approved this year, resulting in an increase of 38% in approvals compared to the same period last year.

Maybe they might leave ordinary people alone who are trying hard to repay their loans and mortgages while the developers and "smart guys" get away in the smoke!
