BANKING giant Barclays has revealed that 428 workers were paid £1 million or more last year, including five who got more than £5 million despite a year of scandal and falling profits.
The group's annual report also showed that chief executive Antony Jenkins was awarded a total pay package worth £2.6 million in 2012, including a £1.5 million long-term incentive bonus due to pay out in future years if he meets performance targets.
Its pay details will stoke controversy after the bank reported pre-tax profits plunging to £246 million from £5.9 billion in 2011 following a scandal-hit year which saw it pay £290 million for its Libor rigging settlement and £2.5 billion to cover mis-selling claims.

DETECTIVES investigating the fatal stabbing of a 16-year-old schoolgirl on a bus have issued a picture of the suspect as they appealed for witnesses to come forward.
The man, a black male in his early 20s who was wearing a distinctive "tiger" jacket, is believed to have been on buses in and around the Birmingham area around the time Christina Edkins was fatally stabbed on a double-decker in Hagley Road in the city yesterday.
Post-mortem tests have revealed that the teenager died from a single stab wound to the chest following the attack on the number 9 bus during the morning rush-hour.
Police have urged anyone who saw the man, who was also carrying a white bag, between 6am and 1pm on Thursday, to contact them.
