The AIB banking group has become embroiled in a new tracker scandal involving 1,100 mortgage customers who were overcharged.

It comes in the same week the bank was accused of scoring an own goal after it started adjusting the mortgage accounts of some customers who felt they should have received trackers, but the bank failed to write to them to explain what was happening.
