The Daily Telegraph - - Front page -

Jes Sta­ley, the chief ex­ec­u­tive of Bar­clays, was fight­ing to de­fend his cred­i­bil­ity last night as ques­tions raged over his links with Jef­frey Ep­stein. The 63-year-old said he “deeply re­grets” his re­la­tion­ship with the late pae­dophile fi­nancier af­ter it emerged that the Fi­nan­cial Con­duct Au­thor­ity and the Pru­den­tial Reg­u­la­tion Au­thor­ity were in­ves­ti­gat­ing their ties. Mr Sta­ley told re­porters: “I thought that I knew him well, and I didn’t.”
