Pleasure to speak to @leemacdonald - AKA 80s TV legend Zammo from #grangehill - on @bbclive earlier about #TSB. He now runs locksmith and key-cutting business Mentor Lock & Safe Co in Wallington and his business has ground to a halt because of the bank's IT problems. #justsayno pic.twitter.com/HtbmTXKm6l— Guy Kilty (@GuyKilty) April 24, 2018
He continued: “My business has literally stopped. I don’t know what money’s coming in, I don’t know what money’s going out.
“It is unbelievable for a big company like that. I’m in absolute turmoil at the moment.”
He continued: “I’ve been ringing the online helpline and it goes to an engaged tone, so I can’t even speak to anybody at the other end of the phone…
“When you’re running a small business, every job counts and it’s just a nightmare.”
