LONDON, March 24 (Reuters) - British banks' demand for U.S. dollar liquidity from the Bank of England rose to $3.555 billion on Tuesday, the central bank said.

The figure was up from $5 million on Monday but lower than demand of $8.210 billion at a regular weekly operation on March 18, the most lent in a single operation since February 2009. (Writing by William Schomberg)
