Barclays has apologised to its customers after thousands couldn't access their banking services or app this morning.

The bank's Barclaycard and Barclay app were confirmed to be down at around 8 am this morning by the bank's UK help Twitter account.

They had reportedly fixed issues with their telephone and online banking that had experienced outages for around 6 am this morning, according to the Down Detector.

Customers took to Twitter to report the outages and express their frustration.


One user wrote: "App not working for me either, no bank accounts showing, just Barclaycard.

"Chat says 17 mins to speak to someone!! I guess I can pop to my local branch to sort out a transfer….oh hang on, you closed it.

While another customer said: "Nothing is working on the app.

"Your website says everything is fine and you acknowledge the problem on Twitter. Seems you need to get your ducks in a row!!"

The bank has now reassured customers via its Service Staus page that their apps are operating again as normal.

On the Service Status page, the bank wrote: "Our app is now working – sorry it took us some time to fix the issue.

"If you’re still having issues – please tap home once you’ve logged in to the app and you’ll be able to see your accounts as normal.
