Lloyds TSB as poised to take over Northern Rock PLC (NRK.LN) before the troubled U.K. mortgage lender was forced to go to the Bank of England for an emergency credit line, but the deal was ultimately blocked by the BoE and the U.K. Financial Services Authority, the Sunday Times reported, without citing sources. It said there were concerns among BoE officials that a takeover would cause greater consternation in the financial markets, leaving Northern Rock with no choice but to ask the BoE for an injection of funds. Spokeswomen for Lloyds TSB and the FSA declined to comment on the report. A BoE spokeswoman said the Bank of England doesn't have any jurisdiction to block bids, and a Northern Rock spokesman couldn't immediately be reached. http://www.marketwatch.com/news/sto...70-4EBB-82DC-2C91C38DAF33}&dist=TQP_Mod_mktwN Thank you Mr. King !
