Britain's Co-op confirms Myners to leave

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Co-operative Group confirmed Paul Myners, a former government minister appointed four months ago to revive the scandal-hit group, had quit, making him the second top executive to walk away from the 170-year-old mutual in two months.

The Co-op, which owns supermarkets and a stake in a bank, said on Thursday that Myners, the group's senior independent director, would not see election for his position at the company's annual general meeting on May 17.
