The bank said "We appreciate the patience that has been displayed".... let me inform them, that patience has run out.
The chief executive of NatWest's owner RBS, has said that "a corner has been turned" as it deals with the fallout of an IT meltdown.
NatWest customers faced further chaos today almost a week after the bank's computer glitch. But what should you do if you're affected?
