Natwest and RBS banking services crashed this morning, locking hundreds of people out of their accounts, according to reports. 

Complaints poured in on social media that users cannot log in, check their balance or transfer funds. 

Website Down Detector revealed that the apps look to have crashed for customers across England – with 81 reports of problems for RBS at its peak just before 8am, and 280 for Natwest at roughly the same time.  

According to reports, RBS service users say the issue has been fixed but the Natwest website is still down for some users.
