Warning all RBS, Natwest punters. Withdraw cash now

Enough for the weekend

This weekend Royal Bank of Scotland and Natwest integrate their computer systems. It goes live Monday.

Staff are on stand-by to open branches on Sunday in case the ATM hole-in-the-wall machines fail during the exercise, an unwitting bank employee told a Register colleague going about his daily business (although since the system goes live Monday, maybe this infor is incorrect)

We think you should withdraw your money this evening - no, we're not encouraging a run on the bank, just trying to ensure that you have enough cash for the weekend. And Monday of course. ®
