Royal Bank of Scotland has set aside a further £400m to cover the cost of claims for mis-sold payment protection insurance.
It takes the bank's total charges for PPI mis-selling to £1.7bn.
The figures were disclosed as RBS reported a pre-tax loss of £1.26bn for the three months to 30 September, against a £2bn profit in 2011.
The bank, which is 80% owned by the UK government, has also set aside another £50m to cover the cost of compensation of the recent computer systems failure that hit customers.
