LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s Barclays said customers were experiencing problems logging into mobile, telephone and digital banking on Thursday, the latest in a string of such outages as banks upgrade their systems and push more customers online.

“We are having a few issues but the team is on the job to get this fixed,” the bank told customers who were complaining on social media platform Twitter. The bank said the problems were affecting “a number of customers” without giving details.
