Barclays Online Offline again

You can take it to the bank. In fact you'll have to

Barclays Online banking has suffered its second weekday working-hours outage in a matter of days, offering only intermittent service for most of this morning according to Register readers and throwing a complete double-six at lunchtime today.

"Live Help" folk on the Barclays site noted that: "We are aware that our online banking service is currently experiencing intermittent technical difficulties... we are facing these difficulties since this morning."

Barclays said it is working hard to resolve the matter as quickly as it can. But the best advice on offer right now is to come back "later in the day".

It's been a bad week for the bank's online service, which went titsup on 22 May for what appeared to be similarly unknown reasons. All this when its trumpeting its new speedy online banking service too - which is actually quite nice when it's working, to be fair. ®
