A spokesman for RBS, which owns the NatWest brand, said: "We are aware that some customers are experiencing intermittent issues accessing our mobile and online banking. "We apologise to customers for the inconvenience and are working hard to fix the problem. There is no impact on debit cards, credit cards, ATMs, telephone and branch banking services - customers can continue to access these as normal." Research from Which? released earlier this week found the banking industry suffers around five IT failures each week typically, shutting millions of customers out of accounts and making payments.
