A new survey for the Wall Street Journal found that even lawyers are now seen as more trustworthy than chief executives.

Only 4% of respondents in Britain said they had a lot of trust in top managers compared with 50% for doctors.

Around half of respondents said recent high profile accounting scandals had influenced their feelings.

In Britain chief executives and politicians, however, faired better than journalists who were the least trusted.
