Two major banking groups have suffered from system errors which have been causing problems for customers including many in Thurrock.
Users of Lloyds TSB debit cards, ATMs, and the bank’s online banking service complained of difficulties, along with customers at the Halifax.

The Co-operative Bank also admitted to suffering from a “temporary issue” with its systems.
