Nigel said: “I thought after the Coutts files, it couldn't possibly get worse. And that's what I put in the subject access request to NatWest, which by law should come back in 30 days. But the loophole is they said it was so complex that they wouldn't come back for three months. And that is what you're seeing today."

It comes after Nigel announced his Coutts account had been closed because his views did not align with those of the bank.

He has since switched to Lloyds Bank.

A NatWest Group spokesperson said: “We have written to Mr Farage to apologise sincerely for the deeply inappropriate comments made about him and the poor behaviours displayed. Neither are consistent with the standards of service that our clients should expect.

“The Group has commissioned an independent review into recent events, Phase One of which has been delivered to the Board and we will complete the necessary processes and publish the key findings, along with the Group’s response, as soon as possible.

“We are determined to learn the necessary lessons from this so that in the future we live up to the high expectations our clients rightly place upon us.”
