Martin Wheatley, the former chief executive of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), had a pay package of more than £800,000 in his final year at the regulator, its annual report reveals.

He had total pay of £701,000 in 2014/15 financial year and £610,000 in 2013/14.
The report said Wheatley (pictured) resigned from the FCA on 17 July 2015 and from the board on 13 September 2015. He will continue to be employed by the watchdog until 31 July this year in accordance with his contract, the FCA said.
His 2016 figures, it said, include a total contractual amount payable from 1 April to 31 July of £185,767 (£158,333 in basic salary, £13,184 in other benefits and £14,250 in a 9% non-pensionable contribution).
