Gareth Shaw, Money Manager at Which ?, said: âThese technical issues will cause stress for many Santander customers – people reporting they were unable to make payments online or in some cases , buy food in their local supermarket.
âCustomers can incur fines, penalties and fees when they are unable to access their finances, so the bank must offer compensation to all who have been so affected.
