Technical glitch knocks out some Ulster Bank services

The bank says it’s aware of technical problems, while customers say any payments made last night aren’t appearing.

ULSTER BANK has said it is aware of a technical problem with its consumer banking services which has left a significant number of account holders unable to view details of any transactions since yesterday evening.

The bank has reported an issue “affecting a number of Ulster Bank systems”, and that it was seeking to resolve them as soon as possible.

TheJournal.ie understands that the issue affects payments into accounts from last night onwards, with account balances not showing the results of any transactions since then.

BBC News said regular weekly benefit payments into some Ulster Bank accounts north of the border had not gone through as a result of the disruption.

Ulster Bank said it apologised to its customers for any inconvenience caused by the disruption to its services.
