BARNSLEY lad Joshua Morris won't be opening up an account with Santander after the bank's decision to turn him down because his circus skills business caused them a "moral problem".
Joshua, 20, from Dodworth Road, set up Circus Uncertainty with his business partner Lucy Tucker and employs acrobats, jugglers, stilt walkers and fire performers.
Joshua applied for a business bank account with Santander. But bosses at Santander took exception to burlesque-style outfits worn by showgirls, after checking out pictures on Circus Uncertainty's website.
He said a bank spokesman told him they had a 'moral problem' with the business.
