Thompson to stay on at L&G

Legal & General has confirmed that mortgages director Ben Thompson will no longer be leaving the company.

The news comes less than a week after L&G announced that Thompson was leaving the firm.

It was thought that Thompson had secured a post at insurer Towergate, after a year of service with L&G.

A spokesman for L&G says: “This decision has been made for purely personal reasons, as circumstances have changed in the past week.”

Thompson will now continue in his current role as director of mortgages for the L&G mortgage club.
