Websites and app services were down across all three banks, with the group explaining the issues stemmed from the log-in process. Telephone banking could still be used, however.


The problems emerged at around 4am on New Year’s Day and were resolved by around 12pm.



The group has a total of 13 million online customers and around nine million app users.


In October, MPs in the Treasury Committee criticised banks for the frequency of online and mobile outages.


The ministers warned that greater levies and regulation in the banking sector may be necessary unless the sector improves the performance of its online and mobile services.
