Bob Diamond Breaks Cover

Iron Bob

Ex-Barclays boss Bob Diamond was seen out in London for the first time in months last night, nearly a year after he resigned over the rate-fixing scandal.

The Daily Mail reports that the 61-year-old banker, who pocketed £2m severance pay plus a pension when he quit the bank in disgrace last July, attended a fund-raising dinner at the Savoy Hotel.

Dressed in black tie, he joined B-list celebrities including Tania Bryer, Patsy Palmer and Neil Fox on the red carpet at the Global Party, a fundraiser for disadvantaged young Londoners.

Diamond has barely been seen since he stood down as Barclays CEO after the bank was found guilty of manipulating the interbank lending rate, Libor.

Diamond, who is married with three children, is said to have quit Britain following the scandal, and was spotted in New York last month riding the subway.
