Bank of Ireland has joined up with roadside recovery firm AA to offer a range of financial services to UK consumers for at least 10 years.

The new services will be launched from the third quarter of 2015.

They include credit cards, unsecured personal loans, savings and mortgages, the bank said in a statement.

The bank said the new partnership deal will combine Bank of Ireland UK's "proven product development capabilities" with the strength of the AA brand and assets and its extensive and attractive membership base
