AROUND 275,000 payments likely to total hundreds of millions of pounds have been held up by a glitch in HSBC's systems.
The fault has left workers fuming as their salary has not arrived, leaving them potentially short of funds - just in time for the bank holiday weekend.
Alan Charlesworth, managing director of insurance and legal recruiter IPS Group, took to Twitter to complain: "None of my staff have been paid. HSBC when will this be sorted?" A spokesman for the bank said: "We are taking immediate steps to ensure the payments reach beneficiaries as quickly as possible."
