LONDON, March 24 (Reuters) - Lloyds Banking Group has halted plans to cut around 780 jobs in view of the unfolding coronavirus epidemic, a source familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.
The cuts were originally announced in February as part of a cost-cutting drive at the lender.
The Guardian newspaper first reported the news on Tuesday.
