NatWest customers have been left frustrated and angry after technical issues left them unable to access its banking app.

The bank received complaints from disgruntled customers on Friday morning, on a day when many receive their monthly wages, stating that the app was failing to load up effectively on their mobile phones.

The problems follow a series of technical glitches for the state-owned bank.

Last year, thousands of Royal Bank of Scotland, NatWest and Ulster Bank customers were left unable to make or receive payments due to a software failure, whilst a number of problems have been reported regarding banking apps across all three brands this year.

NatWest has responded to customers, stating on its Twitter page: "There seems to be a problem with the app at the moment, which we're looking into."
