Barclays' online banking system and app appears to have crashed this morning, leaving thousands of customers unable to access their accounts.

According to Down Detector, which monitors website outages, around 2,000 users began experiencing issues at around 06:00 BST. 

A number of people have taken to social media to express their frustration.

One Barclays customer wrote on Twitter: 'Barclays is there a problem with online banking can't see my account??'

Another added: 'Is anyone else's Barclays app down?? Can't see any of my accounts when I open the app?'

The outage comes just 48 hours after both HSBC and NatWest also suffered problems with their online banking systems.

On Monday morning, HSBC customers were unable to access their accounts for around two hours before the problem affecting HSBCnet was resolved.

A few hours later NatWest also experienced issues, with its customers struggling to log into their accounts via online and mobile banking.

Both banks apologised for the disruption when the problems were fixed but neither revealed the cause of their respective outage.
