What can be done with a bank account number and sort code?

What can be done, legally or illegally, if I was to give someone my bank account and sort code, along with the name of the bank (not my name)?
Please note I am in the UK.

    i think that the worst that can happen is that they pay money into your account

    Anything. They can produce false checks with that number to buy things, or simply drain your account through a wire transfer.

    I’d say a lot of financial damage could be done by giving out this sort of information………so beware.

    This is the information you give out anyway everytime you use your debit card, write a cheque, or make anelectronic transfer.
    They could pay money into your account but they won’t have any means to draw it out.
    Don’t worry it’s safe.
