Lloyds TSB customers go cash machine crazy

Lloyds TSB customers went cash machine crazy over the Bank Holiday weekend, the bank has revealed.

According to Lloyds TSB, debit and credit card holders withdrew a total of £268 million from the bank's ATMs over the August Bank Holiday.

The sun drew the crowds to the surfers' paradise of Newquay, in Cornwall, which saw the busiest Lloyds TSB Cashpoint machine activity, followed by Dartmouth in Devon, Covent Garden and Butler Place in London.

Happy workers celebrated the beginning of the holiday weekend in style, the bank revealed, making almost 1,000 withdrawals per minute on Friday August 26.

"This weekend was one of the busiest we've seen which reinforces the importance of easy access to cash whether you're surfing in Newquay or clothes shopping in Covent Garden," said Matthew Timms, ATM director at Lloyds TSB.
"None of our ATMs charge a fee and with over 4,000 across the country there's always one nearby to get cash, check your balance and even top up your mobile phone."
The average withdrawal made on Friday was £70, falling to £60 on Saturday, and between £50 and £60 on Sunday and Monday.
