Britain's biggest building society has apologised to customers after it suffered a technical problem to its online and mobile banking service today.

Nationwide Building Society said everything is now up and running after the problems, which lasted for around 45 minutes, happened this afternoon.

It is thought that the issues were connected to some maintenance work.

A spokesman for Nationwide said that it apologises to customers for the inconvenience caused.

Cash machines and card payments were unaffected.

The technical problem came after a separate incident yesterday when property purchases were thrown into turmoil as a Bank of England system used to transfer hundreds of billions of payments between lenders was hit by a glitch.

The Bank and the operators of the Clearing House Automated Payment System (Chaps) extended opening hours into yesterday evening to help ensure the payments could be processed after the problem was resolved.

The Bank has said a "thorough, independent" review has been launched into what went wrong.
