By Andrew MacAskill and Lawrence White LONDON (Reuters) - Lloyds Banking Group said on Thursday it would step up its cost cutting plans to help to offset a more testing economic environment caused by Britain's vote to quit the European Union. Britain's largest retail bank aims to save 400 million pounds ($528.56 million) by end-2017 by axing a further 3,000 jobs and closing an additional 200 branches to protect its earnings and dividends against the effects of lower-for-longer interest rates. Lloyds, rescued in a 20.5 billion pound taxpayer bail-out during the financial crisis, is the first major British bank to report results since the referendum and is the most exposed to any downturn in the British economy.

Airbus Group posted 1.03 billion euros of charges for the A400M following gearbox problems and fuselage cracks and 385 million for the A350, whose deliveries have been held up by shortages of seats and, most recently, botched toilet doors.
