In comparison, Jones was paid less than a third of that, the equivalent of £2.5 million, in 2012.

Breaking down Jones’ compensation, the former chief executive received more than £3.5 million in employment payments, of which more than £715,000 was for fixed compensation and a similar amount for bonuses.

Finally, Jones also received £77,000 in fringe benefits, the company’s report said.
