The lender revealed low interest rates and mortgage difficulties meant it posted a fall of $8.8 billion across the time-frame.

Nevertheless, concerns have also arisen that a sluggish economy will do little to help the biggest bank in the US get back on its feet.
Brian Moynihan, chief executive officer at BofA - which boasts a history of more than 200 years - played down the problems by suggesting the lender was in a better position between March and June than it was in the same spell last year, adding: "We don't need to raise capital."
However, shares in the bank dipped by 1.5 per cent following the announcement.
