Brief Natwest's online, mobile and telephone banking services are having an unscheduled rest today, Saturday, November 5.

At time of writing customers who try to log-in to their accounts are greeted with the following message:

We're sorry our Digital, Mobile and Telephone Banking services are currently unavailable. We're working hard to get them back up and running as soon as possible.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

According to Reg readers, the service was unavailable at 7am.

We'll update the story as and when we find out more about the outage. And readers, do let us know when service is restored.
