One of Britains largest banks had its website defaced in protest at high fuel prices.
Instead of introducing customers to banking services, yesterday the HSBC's website displayed picture of Prime Minister Tony Blair with a bubble caption reading "Listen to Herbless. He talks sense." Customers in the UK, Spain, Greece and the Middle East could view the site.

The hacker dubbed Herbless has defaced hundreds of websites over the last week.
Herbless said he had hacked into these sites and posted protest pages because he believed tax on petrol was "ridiculously high" in the UK.
A spokesman for the bank said: "The false pages were quickly removed and no customer records or transactions have been affected."
