Following numerous high-profile IT failures at banks, the regulators have launched investigations. The findings of these probes,including one into RBS’s major IT crash in 2012, are yet to be fully published.

The glitch in the RBS CA7 batch process scheduler ended with 12 million customer accounts being frozen. Customers could not access their funds for a week or more as RBS, Nat West and the Ulster Bank updated account balances manually.

On Tuesday 18th April, Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap general election for 8th June, taking the nation by surprise.
