LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s biggest mortgage lender Lloyds Banking Group <LLOY.L> posted weaker-than-expected third quarter pre-tax profits on Thursday, after making a further 1.8 billion pound provision for mis-sold loan insurance payouts.

The bank posted pre-tax profits of 50 million pounds for the three months to end-September, below forecasts of 163 million pounds, according to a company-provided average of analyst forecasts.
