Thursday 18th September 2008. Lloyds TSB have announced a takeover of the beleaguered Halifax Bank of Scotland bank which has its headquarters in Edinburgh on the Mound. On the previous three days HBOS had been under enormous pressure as its plummeting share price threatened to bring down the bank. The takeover could result in a large number of job losses. This newspaper board was placed outside the entrance to the headquarters.
