ING Bank Romania has said that a failed fire drill led to a tech glitch.

The drill at its data centre lead to an interruption of all its retail banking operations for around 10 hours on Saturday. The bank said that the incident was 'exceptional and without precedent.'

The bank said, 'Due to the magnitude and complexity of the faults, unfortunately the time required to restore the activity through the back-up system took more than in the period of tests we run regularly. Moreover, in order to fully ensure the integrity of the data, we made an additional copy of the database before restoring the system, which has prolonged the period in which the services were offline.'
