Albanian Krenar Lusha, 30, was given £93,000 after NatWest failed to complete full checks on his UK status. He used the cash to buy a house in Derby, where he stored bomb-making equipment and information on how to carry out attacks. The illegal immigrant also managed to get a UK driving licence, secure a £30,000-a-year engineering job and was even offered a second mortgage - which he declined. Lusha opened a NatWest bank account in 2000, soon after he sneaked into Britain on the back of a lorry. When bank staff were asked about its dealings with Lusha, one mortgage advisor told Preston Crown Court: 'He was just a pleasant natured person and there was nothing untoward.'
