You can also register a complaint with the European Union’s Online Dispute Resolution platform (or ODR). Their website is http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. The ODR will simply pass your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
If we are not able to meet our responsibilities, you may be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). You can contact them at:

The level of protection for non-compulsory insurance claims is 90% of the value of the claim with no upper limit.
