My sister told me earlier everyone is queuing up outside metrobank to empty their safety deposit boxes & accounts!
Is this necessary?

What have I missed?

Sorry I'm not as clued up as many of you on here...... 😄

Most people are panicking over nothing. Accounts with under 75k are automatically protected if a bank goes down which Metro Bank is far from.

They're looking for a cash injection of 350M

As it's safety deposit boxes people are emptying could be valuables in excess of 85k

They were probably queuing up because banks are closed on a Sunday

Mmmm...... I'd say reason to be concerned, judging by how things are currently!
