Contractors Left Bank Unlocked

 

Updated : Apr 8, 2009

Contractors left a high street branch of Barclays Bank wide open overnight after forgetting to lock it.

Bank staff had locked up the building after leaving on Friday afternoon, but the contractors returned later to the Low Fell branch in Gateshead to pick up some documents and forgot to lock up after.

Barclays was alerted to the security lapse when a customer strolled in to the empty branch the following day. With no staff in sight, and no security alarm sounding, the confused member of the public alerted the police. Officers were quickly on the scene and secured the site before calling the bank's security firm to safely lock up the building.

Barclays insisted documents and cash were all safely locked away, and thanked the customer for alerting police.A bank spokeswoman said: "Incidents of this nature are very rare and we do take them very seriously. We will be reviewing the circumstances with the third party contractor, whose standards appear to have fallen short on this occasion. We will also be thanking our customer for their vigilance."
