A BANKRUPT Glasgow businessman is staging a hunger strike and sleeping on the street to protest being ‘mis-sold’ loans by Clydesdale Bank.

John Guidi blames the bank – now CYBG – for the collapse of his property business and says he is ‘desperate’.

The tycoon believes they mis-sold him £10million in ‘risky’ short-term loans before calling in the debt in 2012 despite him never missing a payment.

And now the 63-year-old will sleep in a tent near CYBG’s Glasgow city centre headquarters in protest.

He will drink only water until the company Chief Exec David Duffy holds talks with him.

Guidi, from Bothwell, starts his hunger strike today and will spend his first night in the tent tonight.
