Ulster Bank 'technical issue' affects benefits payments

Ulster Bank

Benefit payments for some Ulster Bank customers have not gone through because of a technical failure.

People who were due to receive payments have been contacting social security offices to ask about their money.

An Ulster Bank spokeswoman said: "We are aware of a technical issue affecting a number of Ulster Bank systems which we are looking to resolve as quickly as possible.

"We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience this may cause."
