Thousands ‘locked out’ of Lloyds, Halifax, and Bank of Scotland accounts

Thousands of people were reportedly locked out of their Lloyds, Halifax, and Bank of Scotland accounts on Monday, with no access to internet banking or apps.

According to Down Detector, more than 1000 people reported an issue with the Lloyds website by 11am.

A further 1,100 people had logged a problem with Halifax services by the same time, while around 150 Bank of Scotland customers flagged the lock-out.

According to a report by City A.M. the problems all stem from Lloyds Banking Group, which owns all three banking providers.

The problem has now been resolved.

A Lloyds Banking Group spokesperson said: “Customers can now log in through their app and on internet banking as normal. We're sorry some of our customers had issues with this earlier today”
