ATM’s to charge £20 for each withdrawal


Cash machines will charge a minimum fee of £20 for each withdrawal from Monday week.

Although the average withdrawal is only £20, banks have been insistent that in order to increase their profits the new charge will have to be implemented.

Local ATM user, Peter Thape withdraws £20 every few days, but is happy to pay the new charge.

‘I’m just grateful that the banks allow me to be a customer – thank you, banks,’ said Thape.

‘Although I won’t receive any money, I will still get the thrill of pressing all the buttons,’ added Thape.
