The group, which owns Royal Bank of Scotland, NatWest and the Bank of Ulster, apologised to its customers amid reports that they were unable to access their accounts or withdraw money.
The crash comes just months after a computer meltdown that left millions of customers unable to withdraw cash.
People claimed that they had been left stranded, hungry and embarrassed as they were unable to access their own money and had their cards declined.
