The story: FNB customers have been left stranded and frustrated as the bank's online systems were down for hours. Customers could not process any transactions on the bank's app and online banking.

What's more: FNB said the systems were not entirely down. Instead, there was "limited functionality" affecting bank cards too.

In quotes: "FNB sincerely apologises to customers for the limited functionality on our digital channels and some card services. Our IT teams are working hard to restore full functionality on the affected channels," said the bank in a short statement.
