Another 'technical glitch' hits Ulster Bank customers

Ulster Bank customers across Northern Ireland have been hit with yet another 'technical glitch'.

RBS, owners of Ulster Bank, has said that around 600,000 customers across the UK have been affected.

The bank admitted that on Wednesday night there was a 'technical issue' which meant credits and direct debits had failed to go into customers' accounts.

After a computer failure in 2012 which saw over six million people unable to make payments for three weeks, the bank was hit with a £56m fine from the Bank of England and the Financial Conduct Authority.

A spokesperson from RBS said: "We are working to get this resolved as quickly as possible and apologise to customers for the inconvenience caused.

"To any customers concerned about the implications of this issue we advise them to get in touch with our call centres or come into a branch where our staff will be ready to help.

"We will ensure no customers are left out of pocket as a result of this issue."
