Bank of Ireland has confirmed that all wages will be in customers' accounts by the end of today.

It comes as thousands of customers reported they had not received payments this morning.

Customers with AIB, Ulster Bank and Permanent TSB bank accounts were affected.

In a statement, Bank of Ireland confirmed that all banks have now received any delayed payment originating from Bank of Ireland.  

It said many of these payments have already been processed and all credits will be in accounts by the end of today.  

The bank apologised to those who experienced a delay today.

Last month, tens of thousands of public sector workers and pensioners were not paid their wages on 31 July, after problems emerged with the transferring of payments from Bank of Ireland.

The bank confirmed that a small number of workers were not paid wages in another incident earlier last month.

It said that incident was due to "a separate and different issue on 3rd July that affected a small number of payment originators".
