Lloyds Banking Group was hit by a technical problem yesterday which left customers unable to send or receive money through the Faster Payments system.
The problem hit on Monday morning and was not fixed until around 5pm. Customers took to Twitter to complain that they had not received wages or been able to pay bills through standing orders.
The UK Payments Council has told the BBC that the problem was not with its central Faster Payments system and only affected Lloyds.
