Residents of the English market town of Chorley flocked to a Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) ATM last week after word spread that the unit was dispensing double the amount of cash requested.
According to local newspaper The Chorley Guardian, customers queued along the town centre high street last Thursday after word of the technical glitch spread around local pubs.
The cash machine doled out free money for around two hours on Thursday evening before the glitch was fixed but it is not known how much was withdrawn.
In August scores of customers descended on an Alliance & Leicester ATM in Scotland after word spread that the unit was dispensing double the amount of cash requested.
This is not the first time RBS has been hit by faulty ATMs. Back in 2006 hundreds of customers queued for up to three hours in Bristol to use a cash machine handing out twice the amount of money requested.
