The Royal Bank of Scotland Group has had to set aside a further £50m for compensating customers who were affected by the banking group's massive IT failure earlier this year.
, which stopped balances from updating and held up payments for over a week, hit many customers of NatWest, RBS and Ulster Bank in June. In August, RS Group said it was to cover costs and compensation associated with the outage.
However, RBS Group's latest quarterly results, released on Friday, showed that a further £50m went in the direction of clearing up the fallout during the third quarter of the year.
Referring to its "technology incident", RBS Group said in the results that most of the fresh £50m was redress for customers of Ulster Bank.
The banking group also claimed that growth in new lending was "impacted by relationship managers' efforts being diverted from lending due to the Group technology incident".
The problems hit when someone updated RBS Group's batch-processing systems, and something broke. RBS chief Stephen Hester told MPs in September thatin the incident.
